Garin vs Coric Predictions

In 2019, Coric began to give up its positions. Last season he played 50 battles, and in 23 of them the Croatian was defeated – this is not a satisfactory result for a tennis player of such a high level. But the representative of Chile has been playing very steadily for the last three seasons and is only getting in shape year after year. In addition, Garin has played almost three times more matches on the ground. Still, the main trump card of Coric is the pitch, which on the ground does not give such a significant advantage as on fast surfaces. So Cristian must easily beat his current opponent.

  • Our prediction: Cristian Garin Will Win.
