Belgrade:

Novak Djokovic will skip Serbia's Davis Cup quarterfinal match against the Czech Republic next month.

Serbia captain Bogdan Obradovic said his team will include ninth-ranked Janko Tipsarevic and 27th-ranked Viktor Troicki after deciding to let the top-ranked Djokovic rest.

Djokovic also missed the 4-1 first-round Davis Cup victory against Sweden. He last played for Serbia in September's semi-final loss against Argentina when a muscle injury forced him to retire against Juan Martin del Potro.

In their last Davis Cup meeting, Serbia beat the Czechs 3-2 in 2010 when Djokovic helped the team win its first Davis Cup title.
