Serbia's Janko Tipsarevic is one of two Top 10 players in the South African Airways ATP Rankings confirmed for the team event in Dusseldorf, which will be contested between 20-26 May. The World No. 10 joined No. 7-ranked Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic in the field.

Tournament Director Dietloff von Arnim said, "Serbia is surely among the title favourites. Especially, because they became the 2009 Tennis World Team Champions in Dusseldorf with exactly the same line-up." 

Tipsarevic, Troicki and Zimonjic won the 2009 championship with victory over host nation Germany in the final. Looking back, Zimonjic, who then acted as team captain, recalls, "In Serbia, the first international success of our team was celebrated on a large scale."
