Novi Sad:

Defending champion Serbia have pulled 2-1 ahead of India in the Davis Cup after winning its doubles match.

 

Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac rallied past Rohan Bopanna and Somdev Devvarman 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (10) on Sunday in the first round of World Group play.

 

The best-of-five series will be settled in Sunday's reverse singles. The winners advances to the quarterfinals against Sweden, which ousted Russia 3-0.

 

In the fourth set, Serbia missed a match point at 8-7. Bozoljac saved a set point for India at 10-9 when Bopanna sent an easy ball out.

 

Serbia is without Novak Djokovic, who is fatigued after winning Australian Open and Dubai titles in recent weeks.
