who will play the singles? Cilic & Karlovic or Cilic & Ancic?
I think Gonzo will beat Cilic and Ancic, but he will have problems with Karlovic.
Massu or Capdeville can beat Karlovic, but no chances with Ancic or Cilic.
Doubles match takes importance

I'd pick:
CRO:
-Cilic
-Karlovic
-Ancic
-Ljubicic

CHI:
-Gonzalez
-Massu
-Capdeville
-I don't know other Chileans:o

I hope Hormazabal, he will play the final match today in Iquique

our team is:cilic,ancic(1st two players),karlovic,and karanusic (or zovko for doubles).ljubicic isn't in team anymore(he did what we wanted- DAVIS CUP).but he is in good form again,soo it would be better to that he is in team.cilic became better than gonzalez(i like gonzalez and very like marcelo rios).

I haven't come across any info about the tickets yet. I might call tomorrow to see what are the options to buy them other than in Poreč itself and I'll let you know if they say anything useful.

They've started selling the tickets and provided https://www.ulaznice.com.hr/paganini/app/web/ctl_web.jsp?act=events&id=8297 as a link to buy them online. It's less than 20 Euros for all three days. Since this site has no English option as far as I can tell, another place for possible contact and purchase would be http://www.adriatica.net/en/special-offer/concerts_events_en.htm. The tickets don't seem to be on offer just now, but they are a partner and will be selling them throughout the country.

not a chance in this tie :lol: :o

Cilic is in top form, Ancic is returning slowly but definetly returning to a sort of normal form (which is way superior than Massu's or Capdeville's form). And Karlovic only needs to serve properly. Massu and Capdeville returning skills on hardcourt aren't much optimous against big servers like this one, or even playing against Cilic & Ancic.

We could be lucky if we win just a single rubber. :tape:

I think you are right :lol: even with Gonzo in the team.

I'll be in Porec, now, that I booked everything :lol: to support the Chilean Team :)

To be honest, I don't like the game of the croatian players (for me, they are boring), I have nothing against the croatian players as a person, so without Gonzo, it's going to be difficult. So, I hope the chileans will fight until the end !!

A friend asked me to take a picture of Goran Ivanisevic if he's there, I'll have something to do !:lol: :lol:

Well, I always wanted to visit Croatia, so I'll try to do some sightseeing, even if it's going to rain :rain:

A "little" bit unlucky :lol: but I try to stay positive :)

Congrats croatians :wavey:

Except Chileans does not play well, they are extremely annoying in reporting bad calls. They are in debate with delegate then and now. And next to them is tv reporter. Really, really ugly to see. I hope Cilic will Cil Out them soon.

Hopefully, the winning duo will close out this tie tomorrow so that I don't have to watch any more of the "theater". You'd think Capdeville was a few points from winning the match by the protests again :o
