Serbia v Croatia Live
Serbia will host Croatia on Friday at Kraljevo, in the first round of the 2015 Davis Cup. A one-time winner, Serbia has won in 2010, matching the one-time success of the bitter rival Croats that they achieved in 2005.
Croatia’s current team is very different compared to the 2005, which cannot be said about the Serbians, who played pretty much with the same players five years ago. Their best player remains Novak Djokovic, who is not just the Serbian’s most dangerous weapon, but also the best player in the world at the moment.
The Croats doesn’t have a player of this caliber, but they have some nice depth and a potential superstar for the future in 18-year-old Borna Coric. Since the country’s best player, the fresh US Open victor Marin Cilic hasn’t played this season because of an injury, the youngster will be thrown into the cold water.
Croatia’s other singles player will be 21-year-old Mate Delic, who is currently 158th in the ranking. Coric is 61st. With the world number one Djokovic leading the way, and world number 41 Viktor Troicki rounding into form once again, the Serbians will be the overwhelming favorites, who should be able to take care of the tie in the first two days.
