Today, France pulled a game back when Caroline Garcia beat Petra Martić 7-6, 6-4. 

Borna Gojo then took to the court and made it 3-1 for Croatia when he beat Adrian Mannarino 7-6, 3-6, 7-6.

Croatia now progress to the City Final in Perth. If they win that they will advance to the semi-finals. Of the three losing teams in the City Finals, one with the best record up to that point becomes the fourth semifinalist. 

The semi-finals will be played in Sydney on January 6 and 7 with the final on January 8.

The mixed men’s and women’s tournament is organised by the ATP and WTA and is taking place in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney.
