The Canadian Davis Cup team leads Serbia 2-1 after the second day of play in their Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group semifinal taking place on indoor clay at the Belgrade Arena in Belgrade, Serbia. After a dramatic five-set win by Milos Raonic evened the tie at 1-1 late on Friday, the pair of Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil put Canada one step closer to victory with a dramatic win of their own on Saturday by defeating Serbian duo Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-7(6), 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(5), 10-8.
The match was tight from the start, with the teams swapping breaks to send it to a tiebreak. The Canadians had three set points in the tiebreak but the Serbians won five straight points to take the first set. Nestor then fought off two break points early in the second set and Canada went on to break their opponents in the next game to take a 3-2 lead. They held for the rest of the set to even the score.
