Croatia will host the Czech Republic on indoor clay in Porec, the big seaside resort in Istria which dates back to Roman times. The nations are meeting for the first time in the competition. Both nations are former Davis Cup champions, Ivan Lendl led the Czechs to their sole triumph in 1980, when the nation competed as Czechoslovakia, while Ivan Ljubicic and Mario Ancic combined to win the title for Croatia in 2005. Czech Republic is in the semifinals for the first time since 1996, having defeated France and Argentina in this year's competition.
