Next tie 13-15 September 2013
Serbia will bid to reach the Davis Cup Final for the first time since winning its maiden title in 2010 when Bogdan Obradovic's men host Canada in the World Group semifinals. The two nations have never met before, but Serbia will fancy its chances of taking on either Argentina or defending champions Czech Republic in the final.
Last tie 5-7 April 2013
Serbia pulled off a memorable quarterfinal victory over USA at the Taco Bell Arena in Boise, Idaho that centred around the key doubles rubber. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic eased past John Isner in the opening rubber before Sam Querrey rallied to a five-set win over Viktor Troicki to draw the hosts level. Bob and Mike Bryan had been expected to put Jim Courier's men 2-1 ahead, but Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac stunned the twins by winning the fifth set of their encounter 15-13 to give Djokovic the chance to put Serbia into the semifinals with victory over Querrey. He duly delivered, albeit after suffering an injury scare when he went over on his ankle in the second game of the match, determinedly taking his country over the line with a 75 67(4) 61 60 triumph.
Serbia won the Davis Cup title for the first time in 2010, defeating France 3-2 in the Final at Belgrade Arena. Serbia made its debut in the competition in 1995, competing as Yugoslavia between 1995 and 2003, and as Serbia & Montenegro between 2004 and 2006.
For purposes of Choice of Ground, Serbia take Yugoslavia's historical record.
