Croatian Marin Cilic, world no. 5 in the latest ATP Rankings, thinks the World Group play-offs tie between Croatia and Colombia that will be played in Bogota this weekend on clay-courts will be complicated especially because at high ground, but his country is favourite to win it.
'I think it won't be easy, but we are big favourites to overcome it. We are aware of our qualities, we got here to triumph. Conditions are unbelievably different than any other we are used to, I never played at such high grounds.
I played at 1,100 metrers above sea level in Davis Cup against South Africa, but 2,600 metres is uncomparable. It's more difficult to breathe and the ball flies.' But Cilic is optimist and he said that he thinks it will be a new and interesting experience.
Other Croatian players choosen for the tie are Viktor Galovic, Franko Skugor and Nilola Mektic. Borna Coric and Ivo Karlovic won't be there. ALSO READ: Marin Cilic: 'The way draw changed was fair to everyone' .
