In the first match of the group A clash, Lorenzo Musetti made short work of Borna Gojo, winning by a score of 6-4, 6-2. Coric was up next against Matteo Berrettini and while the Croatian did mount a fight, it was the Italian who won by a score of 6-7 (4-7), 6-2, 6-1. The team of Pavic and Mektic did not fare any better as they lost 6-3, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3). Croatia will face Sweden in their second group stage match.
Sweden go off to a fantastic start in the 2022 Davis Cup as they beat Argentina in their first group stage match. On paper, Argentina had the much stronger squad but the Swedes’ singles players simply outplayed their opponents. Elias Ymer was the first in action and he beat Sebastian Baez 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4). It was then Mikael Ymer’s turn who went up against Diego Schwartzman and recorded a comfortable 6-2, 6-2 win. The doubles team of Andre Goransson and Elias Ymer failed to get the result as they lost to Maximo Gonzalez and Horacio Zeballos.
