Well Done. After the beatdown he gave us over here, he had better make the finals for Croatia ;)

I blame alfonso. First Rainer, then ToJo and now Davy. After he gets his hands on them their mobility around the court is severely compromised and their rankings plummet.

How is which country gets it decided? I assumed if Slovakia made the finals that it would be held there.

Russia actually made it closer than I expected, but so close that it's got to be even more heart-breaking for them. :(

Ivan is a proven DC beast and Mario dug deep as well. Congrats to Croatia.
