ARG 2-1 CRO - Nalbandian/Schwank def. Cilic/Karlovic 3-6 7-6(6) 6-3 6-7(6) 8-6

Not as bad as yesterday's match but 110 winners and 189 unforced errors combined.

4hrs 49mins of play too.

No way Del Potro can lose to this Cilic, especially not after Cilic playing 10hrs of tennis in 2 days.

Eh, good old days of Ljubo/Ancic combination...

Actually Ancic should come back from retirement just for doubles, and Ljubo keep playing just for doubles, they would still be like 3x better then those 2.

This tie has turned into a mug-epic, painful to watch those errors spreading everywhere, Croats and their captain so unemotional like they were playing on soporifics

Doesn't really matter as Karlovic wouldn't beat Monaco.

Ivo fucked it up. So much for "genius Krajan putting Cilic to play doubles", he played really well.

Best crowd ever.

Disgusting from Karlovic. Cilic looked like McEnroe in any part of doubles game for this scumbag . Deserved to be spitted in that indolent face for this match. Nobody required return winners from him, but such pathetic volleying is disgraceful, didn't hit any first serve in clutch moments . Disgrace

Nalbandian on the other side was comical. In first 4 sets Cilic with any guy capable for hitting decent return now and then would have broke him in every single service game. The tie is now pretty much decided, mainly because extraordinary effort from tallest fool on entire ATP

He isn't DC coach at all. All DC coach in the world are involve in the tie, but this guy isn't. However, Croatia is good with him.

Point of the match was at 4:3, 30:15 on nalby serve in the 5th. Karlovic had an forehand volley on the net and he he miised. He really should made that. However we don't have chance for any point on Sunday. Cilic can't beat Del Potro on clay (and he has playing 10 hours of tennis) and Karlovic is really in bad form. So he hasn't any chance too.

Yes Cilic was clearly better player. He even served better.

On 5th April 2002 Ivo lost in Argentina in Davis Cup QF to Chela, on 7th April 2002 he lost the decisive rubber to Gaudio.

Exactly 10 years later he plays terribly again. Funny that half a year ago Karlovic's volleying was GOAT. Poor Marin.

Soooooooooo happy for Edu and David.

So who he is, a spectator who is accidentally allowed to seat on the court-side?

Nalby and Ivo were both between bad and atrocious for almost the entire match. But Nalby raised his game when it mattered and Ivo did not. Cilic made some errors at the end of the match but really the Argentines, especially Schwank, stepped up and took it.

I feel bad for Cilic. He deserved more than what he received today.

Croatia never had decent coach. Pilic was so old so he wasn't aware that he is coaching, Prpic never showed emotions, and Krajan... I actually admire him. would like to see mental condition of any of you after coaching safina
