Croatian tennis star Borna Coric tried everything to repair his damaged shoulder but in the end he realized that undergoing a surgery was inevitable. Coric, who battled a shoulder issue for some time, decided to undergo a shoulder surgery in New York.
After the surgery, Coric shared a positive update as he said that his surgery went well and he hopes to soon get back on the court. "Hi everyone, I am currently in New York as I had surgery on my right shoulder yesterday.
I have been dealing with shoulder pain for some time now and despite trying a whole range of recovery techniques it was clear a more permanent solution was needed. After talking to leading doctors together with my team, I decided the best option was to have surgery," Coric said in a Facebook post.
"The operation went extremely well, I am very thankful to the HSS Sports Medicine Institute team and especially doctor David Altchek. "Now it is time to recover and work hard to be back on court soon. Thank you for all the support as always."
Coric hasn't played since March
Coric, ranked at No. 30 in the world, has only played three tournaments so far this season. Coric kicked off his season in early-February at the Murray River Open in Melbourne. At the Murray River Open, Coric claimed wins over Emil Ruusuvuori and Nick Kyrgios before losing to eventual champion Dan Evans in the quarterfinal.

Coric last played in Rotterdam, where he made a deep run as he made the semifinal before losing to Marton Fucsovics. It remains to be seen when will former world No. 12 Coric be ready to return to action.
