The United States continued its Davis Cup fightback on Sunday to draw level with hosts Croatia heading into the last singles match of their semifinal here.
@samquerrey beat Croatia's top player and world number six @marincilic 6-7(2), 7-6(6), 6-3, 6-4.
The winner will face defending champion France in November’s final.
Cilic and Borna Coric won their singles matches on Friday.
In a dramatic doubles rubber on Saturday, the US cut Croatia's lead to 2-1 as Mike Bryan and Ryan Harrison beat Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic.
Croatia has made the final twice — in 2005, when it was crowned champion, and in 2016.
Croatia has seen off 2007 Davis Cup winner USA in each of its four previous Davis cup meetings.
Jim Courier's team is missing two top players — John Isner, the World No. 10 who has stayed home for family reasons, and injured Jack Sock.
