The Davis Cup finals Twitter posted this photo of “defending champion” Croatia in Madrid.
Except … who are these guys?
We see Franko Skugor and Mate Pavic. We don’t see Marin Cilic (who pulled out) – or captain Zeljko Krajan.
The issues are laid out in a story in the Spanish newspaper Marca.
As Marca puts it, one bag of Euros goes to the federations (rewarding them for voting for the changes, right?) – and one to the players.
The players object to the captain’s share coming out of theirs. And Karlovic feels shortchanged on the share offered to him.
