Croatia's top player Marin Cilic will take on Argentina's Federico Delbonis in the opening rubber of the Davis Cup final at the 15,000-capacity Zagreb Arena on Friday.

Argentina will then roll out its own big gun, Juan Martin del Potro, against the home team's Ivo Karlovic.

Cilic is the only top 10 player featuring at the final, but Del Potro is many fans' comeback player of the season with his run to the Olympics final.

Argentina was a finalist in 2006, 2008 and 2011, but has never won the event. Croatia last won the Cup in 2005.
