He lost in the first round to 13th seed Marin Čilić.[172] Ranked 152 at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, he upset second seed, world No. 3, and 2013 champion, Rafael Nadal, in the second round. He is one of three players to have played Nadal five times or more and have a winning record, the other two being Novak Djokovic and Nikolay Davydenko.[173][174] He is the second-lowest-ranked player ever to win a match against Nadal, ranked higher only than Joachim Johansson in Stockholm 2006 (No. 690).[175] It was also his 10th career win over a top-5 player.[176] He followed up his second-round victory over Nadal by beating 15th seed, Roberto Bautista Agut, in the third round to reach his eighth career Masters quarterfinal and first since his quarterfinal showing at the Monte Carlo Masters in 2019.[177] He became the lowest-ranked ATP Masters 1000 quarterfinalist since 239th ranked compatriot Ivo Karlović at 2011 Indian Wells.[178] As a result, he moved more than 50 positions up back into the top 100.[179] Then, he defeated seventh seed and world No. 9, Felix Auger-Aliassime, in the quarterfinals, recording two top-10 wins in the same tournament, and for the third time in his career to secure his third career semifinal at a Masters level and moved another 30 positions into the top 70 at world No. 66. He became the second-lowest-ranked semifinalist in Cincinnati since the start of the ATP rankings in 1973 (No. 203 Byron Bertram in 1975), and the third-lowest-ranked ATP Masters 1000 semifinalist since the start of the series in 1990.[180] By beating ninth seed, Cameron Norrie, in the semifinals, he reached his second Masters final and became the lowest-ranked finalist in the history of the Cincinnati Masters.[181][182] He was also the lowest-ranked player to reach the semifinals and final of a Masters event since No. 191 Andrei Pavel in 2003 Paris.[183][184] As a result, he climbed another 20 positions, and more than 100 overall, into the top 50 at world No. 48. He won the title defeating fourth seed and world No. 7, Stefanos Tsitsipas, for his first Masters title becoming the lowest-ranked champion in Masters 1000 history.[185][186] Consequently, he moved to No. 29 on 22 August 2022.[187] Seeded 25th at the US Open, he lost in the second round to American Jenson Brooksby.[188]

Ćorić continued his good form outside of America, recording his first two wins and reaching the quarterfinals at Tokyo by beating Thanasi Kokkinakis and Brandon Nakashima in straight sets. He then recorded his second win of the season and third straight victory against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the second round in Vienna to reach the fourth quarterfinal of his season.[189][190] He beat Hubert Hurkacz in the quarterfinals in three sets, two of them tiebreakers, to advance to the semifinals[191] where he lost to Denis Shapovalov.

Playing style and coachingEdit

Ćorić is a defensive baseliner. He is very solid and consistent from primarily the backhand wing, but has shown some improvement from the forehand wing in 2018, and this improvement was praised in his defeats of Roger Federer in both the 2018 Halle final and Shanghai Masters semi-final. However, he continues to struggle hitting forehand groundstrokes in defensive positions or on the run. He has great coordination and footwork, thus allowing him to move well laterally on the court. His style of play lends itself to having long rallies and wearing down his opponent from the baseline. Due to the fact that he's born left-handed but plays with his right hand, the strengths in his game are his movement and his two-handed backhand. His forehand, with his long takeback and tendency to break down under the stress of an opponent’s offence, has been cited as an area of possible focus in the future.

In addition, Ćorić also possesses a strong and precise serve, which enables him to win a lot of points easily during his service games. That in turn, helps to preserve his energy for return games and outlast opponents in long rallies, in order to break their serve. He punishes players who drop the ball short, by taking the ball on the rise and turning defense into offence effectively. For this reason Ćorić has been compared to Novak Djokovic. He has been lauded for his impressive mental fortitude in tough situations.

His past coaches have been Željko Krajan (2014-2015), Thomas Johansson (2015), Miles Maclagan (2016), Ivica Ančić (2016-2017), Riccardo Piatti (2017-2019),[192][193][194][195] Antonio Veić (2019-2020).[196] and Martin Štěpánek (2020-2021).[197][198] He is currently coached by Mate Delic.

Personal lifeEdit

Ćorić began playing tennis at age 5 after watching his father Damir play.[199] He has one sister, Bruna. His idols growing up were Goran Ivanišević and Rafael Nadal. His favorite surface is outdoor hard. His favorite sports personality is Mike Tyson, whom he met at the 2016 BNP Paribas Open.
