Borna Coric told his social media how he spent his 26th birthday in quite a funny manner.
“For my birthday I ordered a freshly squeezed orange juice. My coaches misheard me and thought I said I want them to squeeze me during practice. Two and a half hours later I barely had energy to take this photo. When I asked if I can have a cake, they asked if I want another session this afternoon. Lucky to have such a great team around me. Just kidding, I am having a great day and I am really happy to be surrounded by my people. Happy b-day to me,” wrote Borna Coric on Instagram.
