ZAGREB, Croatia -- Juan Martin del Potro again played a leading role as Argentina continued its attempt to win its first Davis Cup, but on Saturday, his presence alone was not enough. Del Potro and doubles partner Leo Mayer lost 7-6 (2), 7-6 (4), 6-3 against Marin Cilic and Ivan Dodig, leaving Croatia one victory away from the title.But Del Potro did not seem frustrated. So far, everything happened the way it was supposed to, he said. Everything could have been worse; lets not forget we will be alive on a Sunday of a Davis Cup final. It will be the fifth time Argentina has reached the final day, and Delpo was present for the last two (2008, 2011).The doubles match was a close encounter -- there were few service breaks and two tiebreakers. Cilic and Dodig made the difference in those two deciding moments to prevail in 2 hours, 42 minutes.?They were better today and remain favorites, but weve got to remain calm and give our best, said Delpo, who will face Cilic in reverse singles Sunday.Del Potro and Cilic are both US Open winners and were among the top entertainers on the ATP Tour in 2016. The Argentine is the last player to beat world No. 1 Andy Murray this season, in a Davis Cup semifinal clash, but prefers to focus on how much things changed for him and his team since the beginning of the year.[Cilic] wont have so much pressure since they lead 2-1, Del Potro said. They deserve to win the tournament after eliminating the US away and defeating France, but we made it really far after playing the whole year away from home. As for me, most of what I saw of Cilic this year was on TV.Del Potro made an incredible comeback this year after undergoing wrist surgery for the third time. He won silver at the 2016 Rio Olympics and was key in securing a place in the Davis Cup final with the win over Murray.It will be super-tough for me, but I am confident we will all give our best, Delpo said.Cilic does not completely agree. I think we are both in the same position. Davis Cup series are always physically challenging, with long matches in which the mental part plays a key role, and I am ready to face the challenge.If Cilic wins Sunday, Croatia will secure its second Davis Cup after last winning the tournament in 2005. But if Del Potro evens the series, it will force a fifth match between Ivo Karlovic and likely Federico Delbonis, who forced Cilic to five sets in Fridays opener.Plenty will be at stake Sunday, as Team Argentina carries the hope of a nation looking forward to ending a very long drought.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- It was North Carolinas strangest blowout win in a long time.Mitch Trubisky passed for 184 yards and three touchdowns to help the Tar Heels beat The Citadel 41-7 on Saturday.T.J. Logan had a touchdown catch and a 100-yard kickoff return for a score for North Carolina (8-3), which forced a season-high four turnovers.We were worried about that football team, North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said. We knew they were a really good football team, that they would control the clock and that our guys were going to have to steal a few possessions. Defensively, we did that.North Carolina won even though its high-octane offense was quiet for much of the day. The Tar Heels converted just 1 of 8 third downs and were outgained by the Bulldogs 371-356.Perhaps most surprisingly, the Tar Heels intercepted a pass.Dominquie Green ended North Carolinas interception drought when he picked off a pass and returned it 58 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. The Tar Heels had been the only FBS team not to intercept a pass this season.Ryan Switzer added a 72-yard touchdown as North Carolina won for the 11th time in its last 12 home games.The Citadel (10-1) rushed for 344 yards, possessed the ball for more than 42 minutes and ran 33 more plays than North Carolina.Grant Drakeford had a 28-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter for the Bulldogs, whose school-record 10-game winning streak came to an end.We were nowhere near playing where we wanted today, Citadel coach Brent Thompson said. We needed a day like today to remind us that if you dont play well and you turn the ball over and you make a lot of mistakes, youre not going to win very many football games.THE TAKEAWAYThe Citadel: The Bulldogs stumbled in their stiffest test of the season to date. Lacking an effective passingg attack, they were unable to rally after falling behind early.ddddddddddddThe Citadel must try to avoid similar circumstances in the postseason as opponents load up to try to stop its vaunted running game.North Carolina: Coming off a deflating loss and playing an undefeated opponent with an unconventional offense, the Tar Heels won a dangerous game without much difficulty. Their advantages in speed and overall talent were too much for The Citadel to overcome.We werent as sharp on offense, but we picked it up in other areas, Trubisky said.HE SAID ITFedora had grown tired of talking about his teams lack of interceptions, but he cracked a joke about the end of the streak.I was told that were the only team in the country that has returned all of their interceptions for touchdowns, he said. Thats a pretty big deal right there, I would think.HIGHLIGHT REELLogans 23-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter was impressive. He ran through the middle of the defense uncovered, and it appeared that Trubisky threw the ball too far in front of him. But Logan dived and speared the ball with his right hand before rolling over with control of it in the end zone. His kick return for a score to begin the second half was his school-record fourth kickoff return for a touchdown.UP NEXTThe Citadel: The Bulldogs will play in the FCS playoffs after earning the automatic berth from the Southern Conference.North Carolina: Still alive for the ACCs Coastal Division title, the Tar Heels host rival N.C. State on Friday. North Carolina needs to win and needs Virginia Tech to lose at home to Virginia in order to play in the conference championship game for the second year in a row.
