World No. 1 on the ATP Tour, Novak Djokovic was back on the court to prepare for the upcoming 2021 Davis Cup where he will be playing both the Singles and the Doubles matches. The Serbian is undoubtedly the key player for his national team and after his sensational year on the Tour, the Serbians will be counting on him.
Djokovic practised with Miomir Kecmanovic in Innsbruck. Novak had played doubles at the 2021 Paris Masters as well with Filip Krajinovic to practice for the Davis Cup but could not go past the 2nd round and then both continued their challenge in the Singles. While Filip lost in the Round of 16, Novak went on to win the title for the 6th time, his 37th Masters title.
Novak Djokovic and Serbia placed in Group F
Djokovic had led Serbia to their maiden and so far the only title at the 2010 Davis Cup and has been on the hunt for another Davis Cup title. They came close in 2013 but had to settle for the runners-up trophy after being defeated by the Czech Republic. Since then they have made the semi-finals only once in 2017.
This year Serbia along with France have been handed wildcards for the tournament. Serbia has been placed in Group F along with Germany and Austria and will play in the round-robin format from where the table toppers and two second-placed teams with the best records based on sets and games won will qualify for the last-8.
Serbia will begin their campaign against Austria on 26th November and then against Germany on 27th November in Innsbruck, Austria.
