DAVIS CUP Belgium sets final clash with France

France can not take anything for granted in their Davis Cup semi-final against Serbia even though the visitors will be without Novak Djokovic, team captain Yannick Noah said on Thursday.

The Serbian team is without Novak Djokovic and Viktor Troicki for this weekend matchup.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut, fifth in the ATP doubles Race, face Filip Krajinovic and Nenad Zimonjic in Saturday's doubles.

Arthur de Greef and Ruben Bemelmans will team up against John Peers and Jordan Thompson in doubles.

That Yannick Noah's host has yet to book its place in the final is down to Dusan Lajovic's shock win in Friday's opening rubber against Lucas Pouille, although Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had levelled the tie by beating Laslo Djere. France last reached the Davis Cup final in 2014, losing to Switzerland.


Millman's appearance in the opening singles represented a surprise with the slot expected to go to Thanasi Kokkinakis.Aussie coach Lleyton Hewitt explained the switch, telling the Davis Cup's official website: "John is match hardened, he's played a lot of five-set tennis, particularly in NY". "They maybe did not have their best day, but John and I played exceptionally well and we got the result". "We have full belief in that he can do the job for us". The other singles match, if needed, is scheduled to pit Belgium's Steve Darcis against John Millman.

Goffin has won 13 of his 14 Davis Cup matches, the lone loss coming in the 2015 final to Britain's Andy Murray.Belgian's medical team have been working round the clock to ensure Goffin's presence after the Belgian star injured his left knee at the US Open.
