Serbia Beats Czech Republic 3-2 to Reach First Davis Cup Tennis Final
Serbia will play nine-time champion France in the Dec. 3-5 final. France swept its best-of-five series against Argentina and will contest the title match for a first time since 2002.
Serbia, which competed as part of Yugoslavia from 1995 to 2003, and Serbia & Montenegro for two years after that, trailed the Czech Republic ahead of today’s matches in Belgrade.
France was already assured of its spot after three wins before today. Gilles Simon beat Eduardo Schwank 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (6-8), 6-3, while Arnaud Clement defeated Horacio Zeballos 7-5, 6-1, in two matches reduced to best-of-three sets to seal a 5-0 win.
