Up and coming Croatian tennis star Borna Ćorić, who last month won the ATP Star of Tomorrow award, has hooked up with a Croatian sporting legend as he aims to get stronger for his assault on the ATP rankings next year…
Ćorić (18), who hopes to be ranked inside the Top 50 in the world by the end of next season, has engaged one of the world’s hardest men, MMA legend Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipović. Ćorić varied his training routine this weekend and was put through his paces by Filipović and his team.
“I had a great time visiting Croatian sports legend, MMA giant Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic. His practice is unbelievably exhausting and he does it day in day out. He is a true inspiration to young athletes and people in general. I wanna thank all of his team and wish them luck for the New Year’s Eve fight in Japan!,” Ćorić said on his Facebook profile.
