France Vs Serbia Semifinal Davis Cup Brussels, 15 Sep - 17 Sep 2017
France will host Serbia in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas semifinals on 15-17 September. This is just the second meeting between the two nations – Serbia defeated France to win the Davis Cup title for the first time in the 2010 Final in Belgrade - though the teams met on eight previous occasions with Serbia playing under the flag of Yugoslavia.
Serbia won its first quarterfinal since 2012 after comfortably beating Spain in Belgrade in April. Novak Djokovic and Viktor Troicki cruised to straight sets wins before playing captain Nenad Zimonjic and Troicki saw off Pablo Carreno Busta and Marc Lopez in a five set doubles.
It was a similar story for France, who saw off 2015 champions Great Britain by the end of day two in Rouen. Lucas Pouille and Jeremy Chardy both won in straight sets on the opening day, downing Kyle Edmund and Daniel Evans, respectively, before Julien Benneteau and Nicolas Mahut polished off the tie by edging Dominic Inglot and Jamie Murray in a thrilling doubles contest.
