Mate Pavic making his debut?

On clay so Croatia shouldn't use him.

Lorenzi has had so many chances to win the 2nd set, 0-40 in one Cilic service game and setpoint at 5-4* 30-40 but now its going to be tiebreak 1-6 6-6

Finally Lorenzi wins the set 7-6 (8-6) had another sp at *6-5..

Lorenzi breaks Cilic from 40-0, good start for 3rd set! *1-0

Lorenzi just saved a breakpoint with a broken string, inspiring stuff :D
Big hold 1-6 7-6 3-1*
Epic service hold for Lorenzi from 15-40 down, 6-4
Lorenzi leads 2-1 in sets
Lorenzi holds from *0-40, playing really good
1-6 7-6 6-4 3-3

Lorenzi down 1-2* in 5th set :sad:
Cilic holds from 0-30 *1-3
Lorenzi holds to love 2-3*
All over 2-5*, but great fight from Lorenzi

if Lorenzi had won that would have been a shock.. but regardless Italians still have the edge because Seppi won

Doubles starting, its Fognini-Bolelli vs Cilic/Dodig as was to be expected.

At *3-4 first set Fognini couldnt make a first serve and got broken.
3-6 for Croats

2nd set good play from Fognini now and Italy breaks to lead *2-0
Fog holds 3-6 *6-1, Italy has the momentum
