Serbian tennis star Filip Krajinovic says the Serbian Davis Cup team arrived to Madrid earlier in order to try to prepare as better as they could for the inaugural Davis Cup Finals. Serbia, which will be led by 16-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic, will be hoping to make a deep run in Madrid and potentially win its second Davis Cup title.
Serbia has been handed a manageable group but Krajinovic insists they can't take either France or Japan for granted. France will be without five-time ATP champion Lucas Pouille, while Japan won't have 2014 US Open runner Kei Nishikori available.
"We came five to six days in advance, because there is altitude in Madrid, so we came early to get used to it,” Krajinovic told the Davis Cup Finals. “Our group is a tough one, even though I think every group is tough.
France are always tough, they have so many good players. Japan they have a couple of top-60 players. We are ready 100 percent, waiting for Novak, and with Novak I think we have a good chance to do well."
