Official: Novak Djokovic to play Davis Cup in Madrid

Novak Djokovic, Filip Krajinovic, Dusan Lajovic, Victor Troicki and Janko Tipsarevic were picked by the Serbia's Davis Cup team captain Nedad Zimonjic to play the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid. "It's good that this team reunites, there is always a great atmosphere between players", said Zimonjic.

"The most important thing is to be fit as soon as possible before the competition starts, have healthy players, and I have no doubts that we have the quality to upset any team. We will have an extremely tough group with Japan and France as opponents.

With Japan we are slightly favorites, and with France it's a completely open tie because they have quality doubles players. Davis Cup is unpredictable, in this new format every match is so important, you play at the best of three sets and anyone can surprise anyone.

It's difficult to predict anything, we need to prepare at our best, we will go there four or five days before the event starts. We will do our best to be as ready as possible. Novak will join us once he finishes playing the ATP Finals in London.

I am happy of being in this team and I am sad that some of our players were injured and not healthy enough to play. Serbia has so much quality, we will have Laslo Djere and Miomir Kecmanovic among the others who will help us." Djokovic will also play in Paris late this month.
