CROATIA - World No 2 Novak Djokovic says his Serbia team, set to play Croatia in the Davis Cup quarterfinals this weekend, has what it takes to reach the final.

CROATIA - World No 2 Novak Djokovic says his Serbia team, set to play Croatia in the Davis Cup quarterfinals this weekend, has what it takes to reach the final.

Djokovic, coming off the Wimbledon semifinals last week, says "it's a pity" Croatia and Serbia are meeting in the quarterfinals as they're both good enough to deserve to meet in the final.

He says Serbia - led by him and doubles specialist Nenad Zimonjic - have the better ranked players, "but the crowd can help the host".

The quarterfinal in Split starts on Friday. - Sapa-AP
