Nole and Janko propel Serbia into Davis Cup final!


Serbia  is through to the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas final for the second time after an epic 3-2 win!

World no.1 Novak Djokovic outplayed no.11-ranked Milos Raonic – 7-6 (1), 6-2, 6-2 in the first match of the day to draw Serbia and Canada level.

The match lasted four hours and 8 minutes.

“I think I played two outstanding matches given that I had to make a rapid change of time zones and surfaces. The home crowd support carried me to victory. I returned serve well and tried to force Raonic into long rallies because I knew I’d have the upper hand in that department, and I was also aware that my experience in the competition could be a telling factor,” Novak said.

Match statistics: aces (4-10), double faults (0-3), winners (31-34), unforced errors (36-63).

Janko Tipsarevic (23) brought a deciding third point to Serbia with a 7-6, 6-2, 7-6 win over Vasek Pospisil.

The 2010 champions will host the Czech Republic in the Davis Cup final, taking place in Kombank Arena from November 15-17.

“This is one of the sweetest wins of my career and I hereby wish to thank my team mates for their support. See you right here in the final against the Czechs,” Janko said in a courtside interview.

The Czechs beat Argentina 3-2.
