Croatia name Davis Cup final line-up

Ivo Karlovic will make his Davis Cup comeback in the final against Argentina this month and the onus will be on Marin Cilic to inspire a Croatia victory on home soil.

Karlovic has not played in the prestigious team competition since facing Argentina four years ago, but the big-serving veteran made himself available for selection for the showdown at Arena Zagreb.

World number seven Cilic, currently playing in the ATP World Tour Finals, will aim for a repeat of his heroics in the semi-final against France - when he won all three rubbers in a 3-2 victory.

Borna Coric has not played in a tournament since July after undergoing knee surgery, but the 20-year-old has been named in Zeljko Krajan's team along with Ivan Dodig.

Marin Draganja is the one man who featured in the triumph over France to miss out as Croatia eye a second Davis Cup title 11 years after their only previous success.

Juan Martin del Potro leads an Argentina team that also includes Federico Delbonis, Guido Pella and Leonardo Mayer for the three-day final, which starts on November 25.
