Croatia go to Australia with the same players that eliminated Spain

The same lineup that served Croatia to eliminate Spain on Wednesday, in the Davis Cup quarterfinals, will appear this Friday in the semifinals against Australia, according to the appointments released by its captain, Vedran Martic.

On the other hand, Lleyton Hewitt will not repeat the team, replacing Jordan Thompson with Thanassi Kokkinakis as number two, compared to the team that beat the Netherlands.

In this way, the first match of the semifinal will be played by Croatian Borna Coric (26 in ATP) and Kokkinakis (95) and the second, the corresponding number one team, Marin Cilic (17) and Alex de Miñaur (24). ).

Cilic is the Croatian player who has played the most qualifiers in Davis Cup history, 32, and also the one who has won the most individual matches, 33, for 15 losses.

In case a doubles match has to be played to break the tie, Nikola Mektic/Mate Pavic for Croatia and Matthew Ebden/Max Purcell for Australia have been called up.

Neither of these couples made their debut in the final eight in Malaga, as their quarterfinals ended 2-0.

The Australians won the last tournament at Wimbledon.
