Venue: Belgrade Arena, Belgrade, SRB (clay – indoor)

Serbia advanced to the Davis Cup final after the 2010 champion defeated Canada 3-2.

Serbia fought back Sunday with singles victories for World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Janko Tipsarevic.

World No. 1 Djokovic recorded his 25th singles rubber victory for Serbia with a 7-6(1), 6-2, 6-2 win over Canada’s Milos Raonic to level the scoreline at 2-2.

Tipsarevic, contesting his 35th tie, then kept his nerve to beat Vasek Pospisil 7-6(3), 6-2, 7-6(6) in two hours and 56 minutes to clinch the deciding rubber.

Tipsarevic served for the tie at 5-3 in the third set, but was broken to 15. He then led 6-2 in the tie-break, but Pospisil saved four tie points to recover to 6-6.

Tipsarevic is now 33-15 overall in singles rubbers.

Serbia meets defending champion Czech Republic at home in the Davis Cup final on 15-17 November.

Looking ahead to the final, Czech captain Jaroslav Navratil said, “For sure it is tough playing away. In 2009 against Spain we are losing that time very easily 5-0, but my guys are good and experienced enough to play finals outside.”

Argentina won the two dead singles rubbers on Sunday.

Horacio Zeballos, who won the VTR Open (d. Nadal) in February, beat Czech Lukas Rosol 4-6, 7-6(6), 6-4 and Leonardo Mayer overcame Jiri Vesely 6-4, 6-4.
