About Borna

Borna Gojo, born in the tennis-rich city of Split, Croatia, on November 3, 1998, embarked on his tennis journey at the age of 12, later than most of his peers. Despite this late start, Borna’s talent quickly became evident, and he rose through the ranks, eventually making his mark on the ATP Tour. He made his ATP Tour debut at 20 years old in Winston-Salem, showcasing his potential to the world. In 2019, Borna suffered setbacks due to injury, but his determination never wavered. A breakthrough moment came in 2022 when Borna won his first Challenger title in Ortisei and secured his first Grand Slam main draw win at Roland-Garros as a qualifier. By 2023, Borna’s hard work paid off as he cracked the top 100, reaching a career-high ranking of No. 74 ATP. His impressive performances, including qualifying for Masters 1000 main draws and reaching the last 16 at the US Open, solidified his status as a rising star in the tennis world.
