Novak Djokovic out of Davis quarters
BELGRADE, Serbia -- Novak Djokovic will skip Serbia's Davis Cup quarterfinal match against the Czech Republic next month.
Djokovic also missed the 4-1 first-round Davis Cup victory against Sweden. He last played for Serbia in September's semifinal loss against Argentina when a muscle injury forced him to retire against Juan Martin del Potro.
Berdych has struggled recently, losing to Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 at the Sony Ericsson Open on Sunday.
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. The Czechs won their only Davis Cup title as Czechoslovakia in 1980.
