Borna Ćorić Presented With ATP ‘Star of Tomorrow’ Award in London

CroatiaCroatian Davis Cup representative Borna Ćorić was presented with his 2014 ATP ‘Star of Tomorrow’ award in London on Wednesday…

Ćorić (18) was rewarded for his string of victories over top ranked players this season, including former World number one Rafael Nadal, which saw him become the youngest player on the ATP Top-100 ranking list. Ćorić, now ranked 89 in the World, hopes to become a Top 50 player by the end of 2015.

“I didn’t expect this at the start of the season, I was so far away from it. My aim was not even to be ranked inside the Top 100. If I continue to work hard, play good, then the next award will come soon,” said the Croat after picking up the award which has had past winners such as Nadal, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Marat Safin and Patrick Rafter.

Other Croats to win ATP awards include Goran Prpić in 1989 for ‘comeback of the year’, Goran Ivanišević in 2011 for ‘most improved player’, and Ivan Ljubičić in 2007 for the ‘biggest humanitarian’.
