Nole was the hero in the saucy Croatia/Serbia tie, clinching it with a really weird win over Marin the fourth rubber. Marin played like shit and Nole kept building these 5-0, 4-0, leads in the sets before struggling to close them out. The crowd was obnoxious as expected, perhaps not realizing (or caring) that they were freaking out Marin and costing their team points.
Nole was able to keep his cool though, thankfully, and after the match he immediately ran over to the Croatian bench and shook everyone's hand before joining his boys for some hugging and jumping. All in all, this tie could have been completely out of control if not for the class of the players on both sides of the net. So good on them.
So the semifinals are set: Argentina at France and the Czechs at Serbia on what I can only assume will b super-slick hard courts and super-slow clay courts, respectively. That's some tasty shit right there.
