France wary of Serbia despite Djokovic absence

France wary of Serbia despite Djokovic absence”

France defeated Serbia to win a place in the Davis Cup tennis tournament finals and will face Belgium, which topped Australia to enter the championship match.

"We are super happy and very proud", said Herbert, who won both Wimbledon and the US Open with Mahut. "It's never easy to serve for the match, I felt weaker at the worst time".

While France is favored to reach the final, the outcome of the other semifinal pitting Belgium against 28-time champion Australia on indoor clay looks more uncertain.

'Physically I'm not at my best, but I knew for the team and the fans that I had to leave my heart out on the court, ' said Goffin, who has been hampered by a knee injury recently.

'Lleyton and I have put so much dedication into this, the Davis Cup has been my No.1 priority this year, ' Kyrgios said, referring to Australia captain Lleyton Hewitt. Arthur de Greef and Ruben Bemelmans will team up against John Peers and Jordan Thompson in doubles.

French number two Lucas Pouille will kick off the tie on Friday when he takes on Dusan Lajovic in the first singles match. "This victory is also theirs". "We have full belief in that he can do a job for us". "It was unbelievable. We got the job done".

A highly anticipared contest between Belgium's David Goffin and Nick Kyrgios could become the climax of Sunday's reverse singles in the Belgian capital.

However, the duo eased through in the tiebreak and are now closing in on an 18th Davis Cup final for France.
