Novak Djokovic defeated Lukasz Kubot, the first Pole to reach a ATP final since 1983, 6-3 7-6 to win the Serbian Open title in Belgrade.

Djokovic played in his fourth straight final after being runner-up in Miami, Monte Carlo and Rome.

“Although this is not one of the biggest tournament I had won, it means the most to me,” Djokovic said.

Kubot served for the second set, but Djokovic managed to return two difficult drop shots to force the tiebreaker, where he won all three points on Kubot’s serve.

“I have one of my best memories here in Serbia, and hope to be back next year,” Kubot said.

Despite the victory, Djokovic will drop to the fourth in the next week’s ATP rankings, losing his spot to Britain’s Andy Murray, who beat him in the Miami final.

Novak Djokovic defeated Andreas Seppi 4-6 6-1 6-2 and made it to the final of the Serbia Open, now he will face Lukasz Kubot, who scored a 7-6 6-2 win over Ivo Karlovic.

After losing the opening set, Djokovic took control of the next two sets by breaking the Italian five times.

“I was nervous for the first time playing a tournament in front of the home crowd which expected to see me in the finals,” Djokovic said.

After tying the set score, Djokovic broke Seppi in the first game of the third set, and again in the fifth, before converting his first match point after Seppi sent a backhand wide.

The Serbian converted five of 11 break points while saving six of eight on his serve in the two hour and 17-minute match.

Lukasz Kubot upset Ivo Karlovic 7-6 6-2 to reach his first ATP final at the Serbia Open.

Kubot will face the winner of the match between Novak Djokovic and Andreas Seppi in the final.

The Pole dropped to his knees after brushing aside Karlovic to continue his remarkable run, which started after he had already packed his bags because he had lost his final qualy match to Dominik Hrbaty.
Kubot was readmitted into the tournament as a lucky loser after Steve Darcis pulled out of main draw with a shoulder injury.

“I had a lot of luck this week, I am very happy with what I have achieved and I don’t think anyone would have thought that I would make it to the finals. It’s hard to say who I would rather face in the final because I didn’t expect to be here either.” Kubot said.

After winning the first set tiebreak without dropping a point, Kubot produced a stunning performance in the second as Karlovic’s big serve looked ordinary against his returns.

Novak Djokovic defeated Viktor Troicki 6-3 6-2 to set up a semi-final clash against Andreas Seppi in Belgrade.

Djokovic dominated the match, to avenge defeat in his only previous meeting with Troicki in the Croatian resort of Umag in 2007.

Troicki broke in the opening game but the top seed replied with a barrage of cross-court winners and powerful serves to take the first set.

Djokovic raced into a 3-1 lead in the second before sweeping his opponent off the court to complete a 71-minute victory.

“Breaking back in the second game and again in the sixth game of the opening set was crucial, it means a lot against players of Viktor’s quality. I am delighted a capacity 7,900 crowd turned up for our match and I hope they will come back for the remainder of the tournament.” Djokovic said.
