*Austria vs. Croatia
Although playing away from home, Croatia, the defending Davis Cup champions, would appear to be favorites entering this tie. Ivan Ljubicic comes in having lost only one match so far this season, and with two 2006 titles under his belt. The Austrians have opted to play on red clay, which would give them a slight advantage, as it would take some zing off of the Croatians’ serves and attacking power. All in all it should be a tight tie, but the Croatians should be able to move a step closer to defending their title.
Ivan Ljubicic; Mario Ancic; Ivan Cerovic; Marin Cilic.
Jurgen Melzer; Stefan Koubek; Julian Knowle; Alexander Peya.
