Borna Coric quotes Novak Djokovic about himself:”He has great fighting spirit, he’s disciplined, focused, committed, very young but confident, which is important. He’s a good guy.

I’ve never felt that way when I have practiced with somebody as I felt with him. It’s like playing myself – we have a very similar game. “
I think my game is quite similar to Djokovic’s. I move well, I don’t miss many balls, I’m a fighter and my backhand is my best shot. When I’m at my best, I am more like Djokovic, game-wise; when I’m not, I’m more like Murray.

So it’s kind of a dream come true – I always ask him if he can come to my matches because it does mean a lot to me to have someone like him in my box just cheering for me. But I think mostly we are very good friends.
Maybe you are going to expect, or someone else, but I don’t expect so much from myself. I’m 18 years old in the third round of a grand slam and I just beat a guy who was top 10 or top 15 for many years. I don’t have anything to lose even if maybe some people think I’m the favorite – which is okay.
