World no.1 Novak Djoković then expectedly put Serbia level at 1-1 when he beat Croatia’s no.1 Marin Čilić in straight sets 6:4, 6:2. 

The the semi-final locked up, it would come down to the doubles match and with Croatia having the world number one team in Mate Pavić and Nikola Mektić, they were always going to be favourite against Filip Krajinović and Djoković. 

Mektić and Pavić broke once in the first set to take it 7:5 before running away with the second set 6:1.
