davis cup tennis semi final preview

The davis cup tennis competition currently see's unsurprisingly Spain sitting top of the leader board with 35204 points with an impressive lead over second placed Serbia. With top players such as Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer not to mention many others, it will be fascinating to see if anyone can stop the Spanish.

Now entering the semi-final stage of the world group, tennis fanatics can look forward to seeing Serbia take on Argentina in Belgrade on the 16-18 September where both teams will be competing for that elusive spot in the final. In the other semi-final, favourites Spain take on a formidable opponent in France which is sure to be a superb encounter and undoubtedly a close affair with great talent on show.

Team nominations will be made soon with the deadline being 10 days before the event is due to take place. Each country will be desperate for their big stars to take part in the event with the likes of Nicola Almagro likely to feature for Spain after being a regular in the season so far. Spain will also be hoping to gain the services of David Ferrer who had performed so admirably in the previous game against the USA where he overcame stiff opposition in USA player Mardy Fish.

France secured their place in the semi-final with a 4-1 victory over Germany to set up a tie with Spain in September. In the other half of the draw, Argentina comfortably beat Kazakhstan 5-0 to ensure they would meet Serbia in Belgrade this September. Serbia's 4-1 victory over Sweden saw world number one Novak Djokovic feature in a rare occasion and led his team to victory and keep their hopes of winning the competition alive.

Be sure to keep up to date with the competition and watch it all unfold as the four remaining teams battle it out to determine which country is worthy of lifting the Davis cup and being crowned world champions.
