‘A permanent solution was needed,’ Borna Coric completes surgery

Borna Coric has undergone shoulder surgery in a bid to reduce long-term pain and make a full recovery.

Borna Coric took the step to have surgery on his shoulder as he continues his recovery away from tennis.

“Hi everyone, I am currently in New York as I had surgery on my right shoulder yesterday,” the Croat announced on his personal Instagram.

“I have been dealing with shoulder pain for some time now and despite trying a whole range of recovery techniques it was clear a more permanent solution was needed.”

Coric has not played on the tour since going out in the Rotterdam semi-finals at the start of March having played just nine matches in 2021.
