Serbia to take on France in final

The often inconsistent Tipsarevic capped an outstanding individual weekend, having also beaten Tomas Berdych on Friday, by sweeping aside Stepanek 6-0, 7-6, 6-4 to power the Serbians into a home showdown against nine-times champions France.

Earlier on Sunday, Novak Djokovic pulled Serbia level at 2-2 after he downed Tomas Berdych 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in three hours 14 minutes in front of 18,000 passionate home fans in the Belgrade Arena.

It was Tipsarevic who sent the capacity crowd into raptures with a flawless performance which saw him take the opening set in just 23 minutes, allowing Stepanek to win only seven points. Serbia will host France in the Dec. 3-5 final after the French beat Argentina 5-0.
