13 Sep - 15 Sep 2013, Belgrade Arena, Belgrade, Serbia, Clay, Indoor
Canada and Serbia will go head-to-head for the first time when the two nations battle it out for a place in November's World Group Final.
The North American nation is bidding to reach the Davis Cup Final for the first time having never previously won a World Group tie prior to 2013. The last nation to reach the competition showpiece the same year as winning its first World Group tie was Canada's semifinal opponent, Serbia.
The Serbians booked their place in the last four after overcoming USA in Boise, Idaho in the quarterfinals. Novak Djokovic may have won two of his country's three points but it was the doubles team of Ilija Bozoljac and Nenad Zimonjic who produced the performance of the weekend to defeat the legendary Bryan brothers 76(5) 76(1) 57 46 1513.
Djokovic overcame an ankle injury early in the fourth rubber to prevail in two hours and 35 minutes against Sam Querrey. The Serbian superstar will be looking to lead his country to another victory against USA's neighbours in September.
Canada are in new territory and will be hoping their No. 1 Milos Raonic is at his very best if they are to have any chance of taking down a strong Serbian line-up at home.
For Montenegro-born Raonic it will mean a trip near to his homeland and for Daniel Nestor, who was born in Belgrade, a likely tie to be played in his birthplace. Raonic won both his singles rubbers against Fabio Fognini and Andreas Seppi in April's quarterfinal, while Nestor teamed up with Pospisil to defeat Daniele Bracciali and Fognini 63 64 36 36 1513.
The winner of this tie will face either Argentina or Czech Republic in the Final, which will be played on 15-17 November.
