The Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group semifinal between Serbia and Czech Republic will take place on 17-19 September in Belgrade.
A temporary hard court will be laid inside the Belgrade Arena which has a seating capacity of 18,200. The venue was used in the first round this year when Serbia saw off USA on clay in front of a near capacity crowd to reach its first Davis Cup quarterfinal. The Serbian team has continued to make history by reaching its first semifinal with a decisive win over Croatia in Split.
This is the first meeting between Serbia and Czech Republic since the two countries became independent nations. Playing under the flags of Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia respectively, the nations had met nine times, most recently in the 1991 World Group quarterfinals which Yugoslavia won 4-1 in Prague. Czechoslovakia held a 5-4 lead overall in their series.
