Borna Coric vs Jared Donaldson – Next Gen Finals: Borna Coric is a Croatian 20-year old tennis player who is ranked 51st on the ATP Rankings…
He is a very intelligent player, with good ability for rallies, athletic, mentally strong and with a good speed on court. His serve also has a lot of quality.
Jared Donaldson is a 21-year old North-American player who is ranked 54th on the ATP Rankings.
He has a great serve and enjoys using the serve & volley strategy. He has a very strong forehand and a very aggressive style.
Coric is a player that was in line to be a future number 1 in the world when he was beating Nadal at 19 years of age.
The truth is that this 2017 season was very rough for him.
He was ranked 33rd 2 years ago and despite not having dropped a lot of positions, he hasn’t been able to find his quality sometimes, although I believe that everyone expected to see him ranked higher.
I think he lacks some acceleration, especially on his forehand, and he needs to perfect his 2nd serve. Still, despite the bad season, he won ATP Marrakech.
As for Donaldson, he has been climbing a lot. I remember backing him when he was ranked 150th in the world but he has been climbing impressively.
His style is a lot more effective on hard courts and that’s where he always gets best results.
Despite not being able to get any remarkable campaign, he has been able to gain some points here and there on the ATP’s, with his best result being a quarter-final at the Cincinnati Masters.
Borna Coric vs Jared Donaldson – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Sincerely, I don’t think he will climb a lot more than this. He is bad in terms of return, he isn’t particularly fast, and his backhand needs a lot of improvement.
To summarize, Coric is a more complete player than Donaldson.
The American will only be able to have an impact if he serves very well and he should lose a lot of points from the baseline.
With that said, Coric has the advantage, since he has done well on the final stretch of this season, which means he should win and showcase all his talent.
