Coric ends US comeback to send Croatia to Davis Cup final

ZADAR, Croatia (AP) — Croatia — just barely — is going to the Davis Cup final.

After eight hours of tennis on Sunday, Borna Coric ended a sustained comeback bid from the United States by rallying from two sets to one down to beat Frances Tiafoe 6-7 (0), 6-1, 6-7 (11), 6-1, 6-3 in the fifth and decisive match of a topsy-turvy semifinal.

Seeking its second title, Croatia will visit defending champion France in the Nov. 23-25 final.

Earlier, substitute Sam Querrey had rallied from a deep hole to keep the U.S. alive.

Johnson, who was playing in place of Steve Johnson, beat sixth-ranked Marin Cilic 6-7 (2), 7-6 (6), 6-3, 6-4 to even the best-of-five series at 2-2.

Cilic and Coric won the opening two singles matches Friday in straight sets but Mike Bryan and Ryan Harrison began an American comeback with a doubles victory Saturday that was decided in a fifth-set tiebreaker over nearly five hours.
