Zadar - France's Richard Gasquet will play Croatia's Borna Coric in Friday's opening Davis Cup semi-final singles rubber after the draw in Zadar.

It will be the first meeting between 17th-ranked Gasquet and Coric, ranked 42, and takes place on an indoor hard court surface.

US Open quarter-finalist Lucas Pouille, ranked 18, will then play 11th-ranked Croatian Marin Cilic later on Friday.

France have been hit by the withdrawal of their top two players - Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - both with knee injuries.

World number one ranked doubles pair Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert will play Croatia's Ivan Dodig and Marin Draganja on Saturday.

The two countries have met once before in 2004, with France winning 4-1 in Metz.

The winners advance to the final against either defending champions Great Britain or Argentina who play in Glasgow.
