Djokovic and Krajinovic are set to represent Serbia at the Davis Cup Finals and they used Paris as a preparation. “I would like to use the next three tournaments to raise my game before the Davis Cup”, Krajinovic recently told Serbian daily newspaper Blic.
“We are going there with all the best players, so our goal is to lift the trophy, just like we did in 2010. Novak is with us, so we are surely not going there to lose. We made an agreement to play, all of us, we are eager to get that trophy.”
Serbia will be battling Austria and Germany in the group stage. Austria will be without Dominic Thiem, while Germany won’t have Alexander Zverev. “Without them, it is clear that Germany and Austria are significantly weaker, and we have our best possible line-up.
The world No 1 is on our side and we are going there to win. Usually, the success with the national team boosts our individual careers as well, so we are hoping that is going to be the case again now, before the 2022 season,” Krajinovic added. Djokovic’s campaign in Paris still isn’t over since he has been through to the round-of-16 in singles.
