Croatian tennis superstar, Borna Coric has made it into the quarterfinals of the 2019 ATP Miami Open where he will play against Felix Auger Aliassime from Canada.
Borna Coric had a big win in the previous sound as he eliminated Nick Kyrgios from Australia by winning in 3 sets. It was a close match where Coric lost the opening set but fought back extremely well to win the outright match. During the win, Coric served exceptionally well as he hit 12 aces which helped him win 68% of his service points. Coric won 86% of his service games and broke his opponent’s serve on 4 occasions to set up the win. Coric has looked very good in this tournament and he will be confident that he can win this match considering his recent form.
On the other side of the coin, Felix Auger Aliassime won his previous match in straight sets as he beat the number 17 seed. It was a very strong performance by Felix Auger Aliassime as he won 82% of his service games and 3 return games. Felix Auger Aliassime is considering to be one of the most talented young players on the tour but he lacks the experience that is normally favourable when playing a big match in a major tournament.
This will be the first time that Borna Coric and Felix Auger Aliassime will be playing each other at an ATP event.
Both Felix Auger Aliassime and Borna Coric have had very good tournaments and that should ensure we will get a high-quality tennis match. As far as picking a winner is concerned, I am going to predict that Borna Coric will win. Coric has more experience of playing at big tournaments and I see that giving him a big edge over Felix Auger Aliassime.
