Italy secured their place in this year’s Finals with a 3-2 qualifiers victory over Slovakia in Bratislava. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Italy’s first Davis Cup appearance. They’ve won the coveted team prize once in 1976 when they beat Chile in Santiago. Italy have finished as runner-up on six occasions, most recently in 1998 when they lost to Sweden. Croatia knocked them out in the quarter-finals last year after they topped their Finals group. Filippo Volandri currently has five top 100 ranked players at his disposal. Jannik Sinner took his sixth ATP title in Croatia this year and reached the Australian Open and Wimbledon quarter-finals. Nicola Pietrangeli holds the record for the most Davis Cup wins with a total win-loss record of 120-44 across 66 Davis Cup ties.
As runner-up in 2021, Croatia automatically qualified for the Finals. Croatia, who made its debut as a nation in the Davis Cup in 1993, has lifted the trophy twice – once in 2005 with a 3-2 win over Slovakia in Bratislava, and then in 2018 in Lille, where they edged out France 3-1. More success nearly followed in 2016 and last year when they lost to Argentina and Russia, respectively. Marin Cilic is Croatia’s star player, the 33-year-old played his first Davis Cup match in 2006 and helped the team celebrate their second title in 2018. With 13 ATP titles together as well as a gold medal from Tokyo 2020 (where the pair defeated Cilic and Ivan Dodig in the final) Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic will be looking to pick up a point in the doubles.
