Ćorić Upsets #4 Tsitsipas With Impossible Comeback

September 4, 2020


Borna Ćorić upsets #4 Tsitsipas



#27 Borna Ćorić upset #4 Stefanos Tsitsipas in an imposible four-and-a- half hour 5-setter at the US Open in New York late Friday night/Saturday morning. Ćorić was down two sets to one when he found himself dead in the water in the fourth set, trailing 5-1. Tsitsipas only needed one more measly game to wrap up the match and head home. Instead, Ćorić rattled off six straight games while facing SIX match points to win the set 7-5. He would eventually win the fifth and final set in a tiebreaker. It was one of the most amazing tennis comebacks you will ever see — against a really good top-10 player as well. Ćorić just wouldn’t go away.



The Zagreb-born Ćorić will now faced unseeded Australian Jordan Thompson in the 4th Round with a ticket to the quarterfinals on the line.




Petra Martić



Petra Martić is absolutely cruising at the US Open this year. The 29 year-old Spličanka has only dropped one set in her first three matches and will now play #23 Kazakh Yulia Putintseva in the 4th Round Sunday. On Friday afternoon, Martić defeated Russian Varvara Gracheva in straight sets to clinch a berth in the Sweet 16. #18 Donna Vekić will take on Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova Saturday in the 3rd Round.

#31 Marin Čilić will face #2 Dominic Thiem in the 3rd Round on Saturday and will be a huge underdog as he has already played nine sets in two matches at the US Open. We will see what the former US Open champion can do, but the rule of thumb at Grand Slams is to keep your court time down in the early rounds.

    Like I said, Vrsaljko out. This was perfect time for him to get the rest he needs. Recovering from Covid and his knee injuries, it was a no brainer to just let him sit, and get somebody else some NT experience.

    Who is more important to their team? Modric or Ronaldo. I say Modric.

    Jedvaj at RB a no-brainer. sorry guys we need to keep him there for the foreseeable future, cause Vrsaljko might be fucked.

    Wonder if Perisic sits? Seems like the big clubs are telling their players to claim mysterious injuries.

    According to Dalic, it sounds like our pressing brand is gonna take a seat for this game. I hate when we let other teams control the possession, but Vlasic Rebic and Perisic are pretty much exactly who I’d want on the counter. Going to be fun, win lose or draw.

    Is it too early to call

    Can we call Coric a flop

    Why is Mile Skoric

    Is it to keep the Slavonci happy

    Very curious choice

  3. BZ says:

    oh boy, did you call THAT too early. But we all know you were talking about Ante Coric, and not Borna.

    Only match I’ve watched in a few years, not a bad one to watch. Coric!

    When Almeria doesn’t want to buy you, then you are pretty much a bust.

    Ćorić was asked by Roma to go look for another team. He might be joining PAOK. Roma are cutting their losses.

  5. Suba says:

    Ha ha ha

    Yeah i meant ante

  6. Maminjo says:

    Dinamo are so good at assessing talent, that when you see them sell one of their young players for a low price… You know that he’s gonna bust out.

    When they sold Ante Ćorić to Roma for only 6 million Euro (I believe)… I instantly knew that he was gonna suck.

    Good week for the Hrvati vs the Greeks.

    *Cue “Grkinja” by Thompson*

    Lets dominate the rest of the Mediterranean with a win today. Hoping for a big game from our front 4, will be a great eye test to see what Vlasic can do in the post-Modric era.
