The North American team will attempt to improve on its performance in the previous Davis Cup, in which it was eliminated in the quarterfinals. Croatia was in the semifinals and was the favorite to win the tournament, but they were unable to defeat Australia. Now that the sets have been refreshed, we will see some new faces.

Our favourite Croatia vs USA predictions

One of the Americans’ unfinished business is to defeat the Croatians for the first time. There have been five meetings between the two, with the European side winning all five. Let us examine each team in order to produce an accurate Davis Cup prediction.

USA to win 3-0

Both teams, coincidentally, have had personnel changes, but when we examine them individually, we see that the Croatian side was the most affected. Borna Gojo (77) is the only player in the top 100 in singles, while three Americans are in the top 50.

Croatia has a slight advantage in doubles, thanks to the second-ranked Ivan Dodig. The Americans, on the other hand, will have world number one Austin Krajicek and veteran Rajeev Ram, who is ranked fifth in the world. Taking all of this information into account, the United States is likely to dominate the three matches and win easily.

Croatia vs USA: Will they maintain success despite some absences?

Both sides will be without some key players but will rely on some potential young players.

Croatia preview

The Croatian team was a semifinalist in the previous Davis Cup season. Taking into account the team that existed, the European Union missed out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win the championship. Borna Gojo and Mate Pavic are the only members of this team.

Without a doubt, the absence of Marin Cilic and Bornac Coric will be felt in the singles matches. Nicola Mektic will not be competing in the doubles mode, but will be replaced by Ivan Dodig, the world number one.

Full team

  • Borna Gojo
  • Dino Prizmic
  • Dude Ajdukovic
  • Ivan Dodih
  • Mate Pavic

Captain: Vendra Martic

USA preview

At the start of the season, the United States squad won the first edition of the United Cup. The United States team was dominant at every round, but this time they will be missing their top prospects.

Taylor Fritz, as well as US Open semifinalist Ben Shelton, will be absent. Despite this, the USA will be well-balanced in both Singles (Paul and McDonald) and Doubles (Krajicek and Ram).

Full team

  • France Tiafoe
  • Tommy Paul
  • Mackenzie McDonald
  • Austin Krajicek
  • Rajeev Ram

Captain: Bob Bryan
