Former US Open champion Marin Cilic and Cincinnati Masters champion Borna Coric lead Croatia in the Davis Cup Finals this week as last year’s runners-up hope to go one better in 2022.

Cilic and Coric are joined by Borna Gojo, Mate Pavic and Nikola Mektic as the Croats take on Spain in the quarter-finals.

Cilic, ranked No 17 in the world, is the only Grand Slam singles champion competing in the Final 8 this week and is a Davis Cup legend. The 34-year-old holds the record for most match wins by a Croatian player, most singles match wins by a Canadian player and most ties played by a Croatian player.

HIs addition to the team for the Final 8 is surely a big boost for the Croats whose roster also includes the resurgent Coric and former Wimbledon doubles champions Pavic and Mektic.
