Coric’s victory over Karen Khachanov in the first round in Rotterdam, edging the Russian in a pair of tie breaks 7-6(6), 7-6(10), was in fact his first win not just of 2017, but for about six months. Still just 20 years old, Coric hit a career-high ranking of world no. 33 back in July 2015, thanks mainly to a surprise run to the semifinals of the 500-level Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships earlier in the year when, as a lucky loser, he beat Andy Murray to reach the final four (Coric had already scored a win over Rafael Nadal at the tail end of the previous season in Basel).
That’s the kind of talent that makes people – especially in the context of an ATP World Tour heavily dominated by ageing stars with no apparent replacements – take notice. Coric had already been named the ATP’s Star of Tomorrow as the youngest player in the top 100 in 2014, and in 2016 he impressed by reaching his first two ATP World Tour Finals – finishing runner-up to Stan Wawrinka at the Chennai Open in January and to Federico Delbonis in Marrakech in April.
Coric went on to reach the third round of the French Open and a first Masters 1000 Series quarterfinal in Cincinnati, where he defeated Nick Kyrgios, Benoit Paire and Nadal (again), but a retirement to Cilic trailing 2-6 in the quarterfinals was an ominous sign of things to come. Coric retired again after seven games against Feliciano Lopez in the first round of the US Open due to knee issues, did not train for three weeks and although he took the court against Richard Gasquet during Croatia’s Davis Cup semifinal against France, he lost in straight sets. Coric announced afterwards that he would undergo.
