The Davis Cup will see Italy and Croatia face off from the 1st through the 3rd of February 2013 at the Palavela, in Turin, Italy. These two teams have faced off against each other before, on just two occasions in the past. Both of them were exciting matches that ended with Croatia taking the tie. The most recent was in 2008 when the fifth rubber came down to Mario Ancic and Simone Bolelli with Ancic taking the match. In the playoffs, Fabio Fognin was a big help taking out Chile and the Italians haven't won a World Group tie since 1998 when they were in the final.
