Borna Coric and Andy Murray: First on in Umag on Friday
Andy Murray will meet US Open junior champion Borna Coric in the first rubber of Great Britain's Davis Cup tie with Croatia on Friday.
World No 3 Murray was paired with 16-year-old Coric in the draw for the World Group play-off on the clay in Umag, with Dan Evans facing Ivan Dodig in the second singles match.
Murray has also made himself available to partner Colin Fleming in the doubles rubber on Saturday, although Jonny Marry is another option if captain Leon Smith decides on a late change.
And Sunday's reverse singles will see Evans tackling Coric and Murray taking on Dodig, who he beat in their one ATP Tour meeting to date.
Murray comes into the tie on the back of his shock quarter-final defeat to Stanislas Wawrinka at the US Open, while Evans is preferred to James Ward after reaching the third round in New York.
