Serbia to host Britain on outdoor clay in Belgrade

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) Serbia will host defending champion Britain on outdoor clay in central Belgrade in the Davis Cup quarterfinals.

The matches at the renovated 6,100-seat Tasmajdan Stadium on July 15-17 could see top-ranked Novak Djokovic face No. 2 Andy Murray.

Murray and Djokovic are friends and both featured as teenagers in the only previous matchup in 2006 in Glasgow, with Djokovic winning both of his singles matches in a 3-2 Serbia win.

Serbia won the title in 2010. Britain beat Belgium on clay in November for its first title in 79 years.
