Highlights: Italy 3-2 Croatia


TURIN, ITALY: It had been 15 years since Italy last advanced to the World Group quarterfinals and Corrado Barazzutti's class of 2013 deserved their place in the last 8 after a gruelling encounter with Croatia that went down to the wire.

Fabio Fognini was the hero of the decisive fifth rubber but there were contributions across the board as the hosts clinched a thriller in Turin.
