After winning the opening set, Cilic wasted a 6-1 lead in the second-set tiebreak.

"I'm just focusing on this tie and working again". It was not such an important point, so I just did it.

"7-6 in the fifth, on the road and on dirt, this is right up there and I will never forget this one".

"I did mean it (to be a lob) but I thought I'm going to miss by a lot", Coric added.

US captain Jim Courier, a four-time Grand Slam victor as a player, was impressed.

"It was special. That was a great shot". "Of course he lost the next point, and it counted the same, so I always remind myself that though they look good, they only count the same as the next point coming".

Ramos was also the umpire who gave Serena Williams three code violations in her straight-set loss to Naomi Osaka during last weekend's U.S. Open final.

"He came up with some good stuff today", Johnson said.

Williams was given a 3rd code violation in the 2nd set of the U.S. Open Final, resulting in the loss of a game. 20-year-old Tiafoe, who is having a breakthrough season on the tour, will be making his Davis Cup debut when he meets Croatian superstar Cilic.

In Saturday's doubles, Croatia's Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic will face Mike Bryan and Ryan Harrison with a chance to clinch the best-of-five series. The reverse singles are on Sunday.

In a dramatic contest on an outdoor clay court in the Dalmatian resort and in the teeth of a noisy home crowd, the USA pair, who looked as if they might wilt as a two-set lead disappeared, finally prevailed in a fifth set tiebreak.

Paire beat Pablo Carreno Busta 7-5, 6-1, 6-0 on the indoor hard court at Stade Pierre Mauroy before France's No. 1 player Pouille defeated Roberto Bautista Agut 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4, 2-6, 6-4.

"They're good at tennis", Courier said.
