Djokovic to miss Davis Cup vs Czechs

Novak Djokovic will skip Serbia’s Davis Cup quarterfinal match against the Czech Republic next month.

Serbia captain Bogdan Obradovic said his team will include ninth-ranked Janko Tipsarevic and 27th-ranked Viktor Troicki after deciding to let the top-ranked Djokovic rest.

Djokovic also missed the 4-1 first-round Davis Cup victory against Sweden. He last played for Serbia in September’s semifinal loss against Argentina when a muscle injury forced him to retire against Juan Martin del Potro.

In their last Davis Cup meeting, Serbia beat the Czechs 3-2 in 2010 when Djokovic helped the team win its first Davis Cup title.
