Croatia and Argentina tied in Davis Cup final

Croatia and Argentina tied in Davis Cup final

Argentina fought back to level an absorbing Davis Cup final against hosts Croatia on Friday as Juan Martin Del Potro beat Ivo Karlovic 6-4 6-7(6) 6-3 7-5 after Marin Cilic's five-set defeat of Federico Delbonis.

Neither world number six Cilic nor Argentine Del Potro were originally picked for Saturday's doubles but both teams' talismans are now likely to be called upon for a potentially pivotal contest in what is shaping up to be a knife-edge tie.

Del Potro had to dig deep to overcome Karlovic, who was spurred on by an electrifying atmosphere in the Zagreb Arena.

Del Potro gets US Open Wild Card

Del Potro gets US Open Wild Card

Juan Martin del Potro received a wild-card invitation from the U.S. Tennis Association to play at the US Open.

Del Potro missed 3 years worth of major tournaments because of three operations on his left wrist, returning to Grand Slam action at Wimbledon in June.

Seven years ago at age 20, del Potro beat Roger Federer in five sets in the U.S. Open final and was considered the next big thing in tennis. But soon afterward, del Potro developed problems with his right wrist. Then came the issues with his left wrist, which he uses for a two-handed backhand.
