BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Juan Martin Del Potro will lead Argentina’s team for the Davis Cup final against Croatia later this month in Zagreb.

Argentina captain Daniel Orsanic named Del Potro on Wednesday along with Federico Delbonis, Guido Pella and Leonardo Mayer. It’s the same team that beat Britain in the semifinals.

Orsanic says “picking the team was again difficult, but we went with players who have delivered.”

Argentina will be playing its fifth Davis Cup final - and it has lost the previous four in 1981, 2006, 2008 and 2011.

Croatia, which won the Davis Cup in 2005, has yet to name its team for the Nov. 25-27 match, but seems sure to contain Marin Cilic and Ivo Karlovic.
