Croatia and France tied after day one of Davis Cup semis

Croatia and France tied after day one of Davis Cup semis

Marin Cilic overpowered Lucas Pouille 61 76(4) 26 62 after Richard Gasquet had fired the French ahead with a 62 76(5) 61 whitewash of Borna Coric.

The two singles rubbers set the perfect scene for a fascinating doubles contest on Saturday, when Croatia’s Marin Draganja and Ivan Dodig take on Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.

With Coric unable to hold off a fired-up Gasquet, Croatia’s pack leader Cilic faced a delicate task and looked the part as he got the better of the unpredictable Pouille, who made a name for himself when he beat none other than Rafael Nadal to reach the quarterfinals of this year’s Wimbledon.

Delbonis beats Coric to win Grand Prix Hassan II title

Delbonis beats Coric to win Grand Prix Hassan II title

Federico Delbonis beat third-seeded Borna Coric 6-2, 6-4 on Sunday to clinch the clay-court Grand Prix Hassan II for his second career title.

The Argentine was more consistent on his serve in their first-ever meeting, winning 80 percent of first-serve points and saving the three break points he faced against Coric.

Delbonis, who broke Coric's serve three times, won his first title two years ago at Sao Paulo on indoor clay.

"I'm very happy to win again on the ATP World Tour," said Delbonis. "I played at a great level today and it's great to lift the trophy here. I took my chances, but it was not easy. In the end, I did my job and got the victory. This is what I work for. To win at this level, you have to be mentally focused the whole match."

Coric, ranked 48th, lost his other career final in January on an outdoor hard-court at Chennai, India.

"It was a tough match for me today," said Coric. "I didn’t find any solutions. I had an opportunity in the second set but unfortunately I couldn’t break him. Nevertheless, I’m happy with my start in the clay season and I’m looking forward to Monte-Carlo."

Coric upsets Nadal in Basel

Coric upsets Nadal in Basel

Borna Coric upset Rafael Nadal 62 76 to reach the semifinals of the Swiss Indoors in Basel.

Coric next plays David Goffin, who beat beat Milos Raonic 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-4.

Nadal, who announced after the match he will have season-ending appendicitis surgery and was playing just his third tournament since Wimbledon due to a wrist injury, looked nowhere near his best while Coric was in sparkling form.

"It was difficult in the whole match, in the whole tournament," Nadal said. "Every day I felt more tired, I tried to practice, to get fit but it was not possible. The past four, five months have been very tough for me. It's been difficult to play and compete."

"It's an unbelievable feeling," Coric said. "I'm so proud of myself and I hope I can play the same game tomorrow.

"There was pressure but I didn't have anything to lose, because if I lose I lost to the No. 1 in the world. I never played against him so I didn't know what would happen, whether he would kill me or not."
