Cilic, Croats Roll French for 2nd Davis Cup Win”

Croatia moved to the brink of a second Davis Cup title on Friday as straight-set victories for Marin Cilic and Borna Coric gave them a 2-0 lead over reigning champions France in the final.

Cilic was part of the latter team that surrendered a 2-1 lead to Argentina as they lost both their Sunday singles rubbers, his defeat from two sets up on Juan Martin del Potro handing Federico Delbonis the opportunity to win it for the South Americans against Ivo Karlovic.

Speaking after his 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 6-3 victory, Cilic said: "It's not every day that you become a world champion".

Cilic lived up to his status of team leader this weekend, winning his two matches without dropping a set.

"It s just a dream weekend, we all dreamed of playing as well all weekend", said Cilic.

"I do not know what I have done", he said.

Cilic broke serve for the match, closing on his third match point.

In the second singles Cilic beat an injured Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets.

"For me the least thing was to lose, very well, but with your head up, to go on the ground and fight me to the end with the means that I had today".

But Cilic snuffed out that danger and turned up the power on his forehand to break at 5-5 before holding for a two-set lead. "I think they're attractive winners and they deserve it". The French doubles player Nicolas Mahut - who had supplied the most vibrant moments of the tie when he and partner Pierre-Hugues Herbert beat Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic in Saturday's scintillating doubles rubber - also gave Haggerty an intense talking-to.
