Davis Cup 2013: Djokovic meets Isner
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will lead the Serbian charge in 2013 Davis Cup quarterfinals on Friday against USA. The Serb will take on John Isner in the opening rubber.

In one of the most anticipated encounters of the 2013 Davis Cup quarterfinal rubber, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia will take on John Isner of USA. When last time USA faced Serbia in Belgrade in 2010, the home-team earned a victory and went on to claim the Davis Cup that year.

This time, team USA will get all the support in Boise, Idaho, where fans are expected to turn up in huge numbers to support the home-team. Both teams are looking good and strong – ahead of this week’s rubbers.

The team USA has new American No. 1 Sam Querrey, John Isner and Bryan brothers in doubles to keep things on track. On the other hand, the Serbian team has World NO. 1 Novak Djokovic with Viktro Troicki and Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac pair for doubles rubber.

In the opening rubber, Djokovic will take on John Isner and in reverse singles, Querrey would play Djokovic and then Isner would face Troicki. While interacting with the media, Djokovic asserted, “I think there is no clear favorite in this competition, especially in the latter stages like the quarterfinals. USA is always going to be a difficult opponent, especially if they’re choosing the conditions and location of play.”

He further added, “We all know that John and Sam possess great serves, as well as Mike and Bob. On the other hand we have tall guys as well. It’s going to be an interesting tie. Hopefully we can get a win.”

When asked about his loss in Miami last week and testing conditions in Boise, the Serbian quoted, “This is sport. You’ve got to be ready to win and lose. I’ve been very consistent in the last few years of my career. I understand that people are always expecting me to play semis or finals of every event I play in.

“If a loss before that stage of the tournament happens, everybody starts questioning it. I’m feeling good, I’m practicing, I’m moving on. I’m trying to play well here and hopefully we can bring the win to Serbia.”
