The euphoria over the Grand Slams is done and dusted and the action now moves to the 2016 Davis Cup. The semi-finals of this prestigious men’s tournament will be played between 16th to 18th of September.

Great Britain vs Argentina

Andy Murray was the shining beacon for Britain in Grand Slams and he is their torch bearer in the Davis Cup too. However, what works in favor of Britain is the fact that Kyle Edmund has risen to the task in the absence of Murray. Edmund scored two vital singles wins in the quarter-final against Serbia to lead them to semis. And with a strong doubles presence led by Jamie Murray, the British team is more confident than ever this year.

The Argentina team they would face is not going to be an easy opponent. They are a regular feature of Davis Cup semis – this is their 11th appearance in the last 15 years. The return of talisman Juan Martin del Potro gives them hopes that they can upset the hosts.

These two sides have previously faced each other four times in Davis Cup competitions with Argentina winning the last three meetings. But so much has changed since these two sides last met in 2008. That probably tells why Britain is the favorite to progress at odds of $1.3 (Sportsbet). But don’t count out the Del Potro factor which may help Argentina edge the hosts. Back the visitors to score an upset win.

Croatia vs France

Croatia host France in the second semis at Zadar in Croatia. After coming through impressively against USA – they were down 0-2 – Croatia will be looking to recreate that magic. In Marin Cilic and Borna Coric they have two players who are in red-hot form in Davis Cup singles while the pairing of CIlic and Ivan Dodig has already created waves in doubles.

But France is a solid unit as ever. They have been runners-up three times in the last 14 years and are spoilt for choice with a lot of in-form players up for selection. Gael Monfils is out, but Lucas Pouille is still formidable in singles while the pairing of Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert looks the real deal in doubles. France started as favorites, but with Mofils out you can now get a better price. Although Croatia have the tools to win, we are still backing the French.

Tip: France to win – $2.23 at Sportsbet
