Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are set go head to head in Davis Cup as their countries are part of the same group. Serbia and Spain are part of the Group B of the tournament along with Croatia and South Korea. Both teams are set to go head to head on 14 September. Spain and Serbia will be pushing for the top two spots in the group and secure a place in the knockout stage of the Davis Cup Finals 2022. 

Viktor Troicki, head coach of the Davis Cup team of Serbia has recently announced a speculative list of players he expects for the forthcoming matches of the group stage of the final tournament of the World Group. The tournament is scheduled to happen between 14-18 September in Glasgow, Bologna, Hamburg and Valencia.

The wider list includes: Novak Djokovic (7th place on the ATP list), Filip Krajinovic (30), Miomir Kecmanovic (31), Laslo Đere (53), Dušan Lajović (57), Nikola Milojević (156), Miljan Zekić (212), Hamad Međedović (266) and the best doubles tennis players of Serbia, Nikola Ćaćić (58th on the ATP list), Ivan Sabanov (93) and Matej Sabanov (94).

Djokovic recently won his seventh Wimbledon trophy as he defeated Nick Kyrgios in the final. After lifting the title he was extremely emotional as he had been dealing with multiple controversies outside the court. 

Reacting to the win he said, "I have had a lot of moments like these in my career and I am grateful for that, but somehow this trophy after everything I went through in Australia. All the bad things that happened went through my mind and when I sat on the chair, I just felt huge relief, because emotionally I have been constantly stressed out, like never before in my life.”

“Not solely because of what happened in Australia, but because of what followed me afterwards in relation to that, lots of negative comments and provocations from various people. That is something I have never faced before, so I did not know how to handle it,” he continued.
