Davis Cup: Cilic, Dodig power Argentina to 2-1 lead

Marin Cilic and Ivan Dodig gave hosts Croatia a vital 2-1 lead in the Davis Cup tennis final with a 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (7-4), 6-3 doubles victory over Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro and Leonardo Mayer. The two teams put their best players - Cilic and Del Potro - into action after the tie was level at 1-1 following Friday's opening singles matches at the Zagreb Arena.

Although the Croatians won in straight sets on Saturday, the match was decided by just a handful of big points. The Argentines failed to convert a break point early as the first set came down to a tiebreaker, which Croatia won due in large part to critical errors by Mayer.
