BANGALORE, India (AP) The Davis Cup World Group playoff between Serbia and India will be decided on Monday after the fifth and decisive singles match was suspended because of rain.

Filip Krajinovic was leading 6-3, 4-4 against India's 22-year-old Yuki Bhambri when play was stopped.

Earlier, India's Somdev Devvarman rallied for a 1-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Dusan Lajovic, who is ranked 83 places above the 24-year-old Indian.

Devvarman broke the Serb twice in the decisive set - in the third and seventh games - to keep the host's chances alive.

Serbia is without Novak Djokovic but led 2-0 after Friday's opening singles, before Leander Paes and Rohan Bopanna won the doubles on Saturday to begin India's comeback.
