Frenchman, who hadn’t found a lot of luck this year and was struggling for most of this season looks like he’s finally found his footing on the grass. He had won only 9 matches out of 26 that he played this season so far until the grass season started. Now, in the first tournament he plays, he’s already reached the semi-final and that’s quite an achievement for this guy. Victories against De Bakker and Verdasco were good ones but today’s victory against Goffin was definitely a huge surprise for most of tennis experts and analytics as not many people expected Frenchman to take down such player like Goffin. Playing against Coric won’t be any easier but Mannarino proved that he might have still had some tricks and we have to look forward to it.
Borna is still only 23 years old but has already seen a lot on the biggest ATP stages. He had his breakout season last year as he managed to win 40 out of 60 matches he played. Borna climbed up the rankings into Top 15. He has a strong all-around game with not many weak points and can definitely beat anyone on a good day including the top tier players like Federer. Coric hasn’t shown up in the best of shapes this season like most of it were played on clay ground. However, there is no secret that Croatian loves hard much more and is better on grass as well. He had a tough game today against Garin but he should still feel fresher tomorrow compared to his older opponent.
