The image of Marin Cilic stuck to a chair in the grandstand, two singular won by fighting with all the heart and annexes. The Croatia of the two Borna, Gojo and Coric overcomes Argentina and remains alive at least until tomorrow when they will cheer a lot of Italy against Sweden to hope for the trip to Malaga. They also won for their audience, now without the band due to the vandal raid that destroyed their instruments during the night. Borna Gojo, world number 164 and already decisive last year in Turin, brought Croatia the first point by beating 6-1 3-6 6-3 Sebastian Baez, n.37 and decidedly subdued. Then Borna Coric (# 26) sealed the Croatian success by bending 6-4 7-6 Francisco Cerundolo (# 27). Mektic-Pavic then conclude the work by beating the Argentine couple Zeballos-Gonzalez 6-2 7-5.

Gojo still a hero

The number two of Croatia has worked to improve and grow these days in Bologna. “Playing for my country is the only goal that matters to me over the course of a season. When I play in the Davis Cup I have fun, I feel proud and responsible, I can give 180%. All my teammates in Bologna this week know the difficulties I had, sometimes I didn’t feel at my best. Too bad we are always missing someone, Borna Coric last year and Marin Cilic this year. ”
