Tennis - Djokovic talks about rough schedule for Davis Cup semi final tie in September

Tennis - World no. 1 Novak Djokovic says he will play Serbia's upcoming Davis Cup semi-final against Canada although there are just three days between the start of the tie and the US Open men's singles final.

Speaking to Politika.rs, Djokovic comments, "I expect that it will be very hard, because the U.S. Open final is on Monday this year, and the first match of Davis Cup is on Friday. I hope to play the final in New York, and the day after there is a charity dinner for my foundation [in New York]. So I will come to Belgrade on Thursday, the day before the first match. Unfortunately, I will not have time to rest, adapt to the conditions, a different time zone, and a different climate. But when I come to Belgrade Arena, and feel the energy of the fans and the tremendous support, I immediately forget the fatigue.”

Djokovic has been one of the players who were not in favour of the Monday US Open final, which will now move to Sunday starting in 2015.

Djokovic has been a main stay in the Serbian Davis Cup team over the past few years.
