Serbia reaches Davis Cup final
TENNIS • Serbia reached the Davis Cup final Sunday in Belgrade after Janko Tipsarevic won the decisive singles match against Vasek Pospisil to clinch a 3-2 victory over Canada. Tipsarevic beat Pospisil 7-6 (3), 6-2, 7-6 (6) to send Serbia into the final against the Czech Republic, which beat Argentina at home.
Canada had moved within one victory of reaching its first Davis Cup final by winning the doubles Saturday. But top-ranked Novak Djokovic beat Canada's Milos Raonic 7-6 (1), 6-2, 6-2 in the opening singles Sunday to tie the series at 2-2.
Canada never before had made the semis, while Serbia won the event in 2010. The finals against the Czechs will be played in Serbia in November.
