[VIDEO] Croatian Anthem Clapped as Serbia Prove to be ‘Fantastic Hosts’ for Davis Cup Tie

facebookCroatia and Serbia have their history, but over the weekend in the Serbian town of Kraljevo that was all put to one side as the two nations met in an important Davis Cup tennis tie…

Unlike when the two sides have met in football encounters recently, the Croatian national anthem was applauded at the start of the tie, which set the tone for the weekend which saw no incidents over the three days. Despite the much stronger Serbia side, led by world number one Novak Đoković, convincingly beating the under strength Croatian side 5-0, it did not spoil the impressions Croatia’s number one took away from the weekend.

“We really were fantastically hosted. I was pleasantly surprised how nice they all were towards us. It was unbelievable how welcoming and attentive they were towards us. I could not imagine something like this,” Borna Ćorić told Kurir, before adding.

“We are all friends and hang out together at various tournaments. We all know each other well. They are all great guys,” he said about his Serbian opponents, whom he joined at a nightclub after the tie with his Croatian teammates.
