NIS, SERBIA: Filip Prpic might be ranked 1,417 places lower than his opening day opponent, No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic, but the plucky Swede is confident he can cause a dramatic upset in Nis.

Sweden's captain Thomas Enqvist and No. 1 Michael Ryderstedt are equally optimistic of their team's chances against Serbia, believing themselves to be in good shape.

Serbia, meanwhile, are looking forward to playing in front of a sell-out crowd in Nis and believe they have what it takes to reach the quarterfinals.
