Davis Cup: Coric should be fit for Croatia against France

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) " Borna Coric should be fit for Croatia's Davis Cup semifinal against France next week after retiring during his first-round match at the U.S. Open because of a knee injury.

Croatia captain Zeljko Krajan was confident Coric would be available in naming him in the team on Tuesday.

Also picked were Marin Cilic, Ivan Dodig and Marin Draganja, the same team which beat the United States in the quarterfinals in July.

"There was no dilemma, we will be the same as against the United States, with our strongest team," Krajan said.

Croatia is hosting its first semifinal since 2009 in Zadar.
