BELGRADE - World No 1 Novak Djokovic will compete with Serbia in the revised Davis Cup this November in Madrid, Serbia's tennis federation confirmed on Monday.
"We have fantastic news: Novak will participate in the final tournament in Madrid. I had the opportunity to discuss it with him in New York," Serbia's team coach Nenad Zimonjic said in a statement, ending doubts about the star player's appearance.
Zimonjic said it is still unclear which team will take Madrid. "We have to announce it 20 days before the start and I hope to have it decided after the ATP Shanghai Masters, which ends on October 13. I am very happy that Djokovic joins the team after a long absence. He confessed that it would be a pleasure to play for his country and he enjoys playing on the team," added the coach.
The 32-year-old Djokovic, who led Serbia to a maiden Davis Cup in 2010, hasn't played in the tournament since 2017 when Serbia qualified for the semi-finals by defeating Spain 4-1.
Serbia will play their first Davis Cup match in Madrid against Japan on November 20. According to the country's tennis federation, Djokovic would join the team immediately after the celebration of the Nitto ATP Finals in London, the final of which is set for November 17.
