Serbia will host the Czech Republic in the Davis Cup final on November 15th. Serbia overcame an inspired performance by Canada to win their semifinal tie 3-2, while the Czech Republic cruised against Argentina, sealing the tie after the second day and winning 3-2.
But the weekend wasn’t just about the Davis Cup final. Great Britain is back into the World Group for the first time since 2008 with a big help from Andy Murray, who won both of his singles matches, and stepped into doubles with Colin Fleming to have a hand in the three points against Croatia.
Murray wasn’t the only big name to play doubles this weekend. Rafael Nadal and Stanislas Wawrinka helped secure their teams a spot in the World Group by playing doubles and getting a win. And in a true team effort, Australia is back into the World Group for the first time since 2007 thanks to some strong play from Bernard Tomic and Lleyton Hewitt.
The 2014 World Group will consist of the following teams: Serbia, Czech Republic, Spain, Switzerland, Great Britain, Argentina, Canada, France, U.S.A., Japan, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Italy, and Kazakhstan.
