Through the legs: Coric’s ‘tweener’ draws bows at Davis Cup

Croatia Tennis Davis Cup 22518- Bryan’s return from Davis Cup retirement helps keep US alive

After eight hours of tennis on Sunday, Borna Coric ended a sustained comeback bid from the United States by rallying from two sets to one down to beat Frances Tiafoe 6-7 (0), 6-1, 6-7 (11), 6-1, 6-3 in the fifth and decisive match of a topsy-turvy semifinal.

The winner of this tie will take on the victor of the other semifinal clash pitting defending champion France against Spain in the final to be held on November 23-25.

Tiafoe improved on serve in the third set and did not face a single break point.

Despite losing serve once in the second set, Cilic broke Tiafoe three more times to give himself a commanding lead in the match.

"I'm appropriate specializing in this tie and working over again".

Carlos Ramos returned to the umpire's chair on Friday for the first time since being called a "liar" and a "thief" by Serena Williams, taking charge of the Davis Cup World Group semi-final rubber between Croatia's Marin Cilic and Frances Tiafoe of the USA.

Doubles specialist Mike Bryan's decision to come out of Davis Cup retirement gave the United States a much-needed lift.

The president's son blasted Cooper - claiming the anchor lied by saying Trump Jr. billed the photo as a Hurricane Florence shot. Cooper also bemoaned the fact that the photo had shown up in "various memes alleging fake news".

He was given the reprimand by Ramos but, because it was his first offence of the match, Cilic was issued with a warning and no points were deducted.

On Sunday, Cilic seemed on his way to a second win in the tie, as he sealed the first set 7-6 (7-2) and had a 6-1 advantage in the second-set tie breaker, just one point away from a two-set lead, but then lost the next seven points and the set. The American great argued she wasn't being treated the same as some male players.

"You know I can not focus on that", Ramos said.

Croatia have beaten the U.S. on each of their four previous Davis Cup meetings.

Croatia is looking to beat the US for the fifth straight time and still has two chances to advance to the final in Sunday's singles.

The 2018 finale will be the last in the Davis Cup's current format before an 18-team World Cup-style event is introduced next year.
