Croatia take 2 – 1 lead in 2016 Davis Cup Final

Written by  Nov 26, 2016

The Zagreb Arena erupted as Croatia took a 2 – 1 lead against Argentina in the Davis Cup 2016 final. The Croatian double pair of Ivan Dodig and Marin Čilić defeated the Argentinean pair of Leonardo Mayer and Juan Martin Del Potro in straight sets.

After the second day of the Davis Cup final Croatia now have a 2 – 1 advantage. Both the first two sets went to a tie break but the Croatian pair kept their cool in front of a packed Arena and finished the match in style with a final set 6 – 3.

The final result was 7 – 6, 7 – 6, 6 – 3.

Croatia only need one more win to take the 2016 Davis Cup and that could come tomorrow when Čilić takes on Del Potro in a singles game.
