"It was a tougher match [comparing to the first round], in the first set I was performing very well, I was really happy how I played, I was very aggressive, I was playing high on his backhand, it was working perfectly well and in the second set I stopped with that and I started to play a little more defensive," said Borna Coric after his second round match against Rogerio Dutra Silva.
