Serena Williams shows support for Borna Coric during his Vienna Open epic against Hurkacz

Taking to social media, 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams recently showed support for her friend Borna Coric after his victory over Hubert Hurkacz at the 2022 Erste Bank Open Vienna.

Following his win over the Pole in the quarterfinals, Borna Coric posted an image of himself on the courts in Vienna on his Instagram and expressed his gratitude to the crowd in the Austrian capital.

"I like this Vienna crowd so much, I try to spend as much time on court as possible. See you tomorrow guys!,” Borna Coric captioned the photo.

The 41-year old expressed her support for Borna Coric, by commenting:

"Yassss,” commented Serena Williams.

At the Vienna Open, Borna Coric defeated Quentin Halys 3-6 7-5 6-3 in the first round, Stefanos Tsitsipas 4-6 6-4 7-6 in the second and Hubert Hurkacz 6-4 6-7(2) 7-6(5) in the quarterfinals. Denis Shapovalov, however, defeated him in the semi-finals of the Vienna Open 6(4)-7 0-6 in a straight sets match to put an end to his tournament run.

Serena Williams's support of the Croat comes as no surprise, seeing as she and Borna Coric are good buddies and have previously exchanged similar moments. Earlier this year, Serena Williams and Borna Coric planned to have gin when they return to the tour, while they were away from Australian Open 2022 due to injury via Instagram.

In August 2022, the American and the Croat spent time alongside other players in “The first annual Wilson Family Dinner”, a generational discussion between the tennis stars sponsored by Wilson.
