Djokovic, Murray target Davis Cup quarter-final showdown

Paris—Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray can set up a Davis Cup quarter-final blockbuster if they successfully pilot Serbia and defending champions Great Britain through the first round.
However, the world’s top two players will go into their home clashes against Kazakhstan and Japan respectively this weekend with question marks over their fitness and match sharpness.
World number one Djokovic saw his streak of 17 successive finals come to an end in Dubai last week when an eye infection forced a quarter-final retirement.
Murray, meanwhile, hasn’t hit a ball in anger since losing to old rival Djokovic in the Australian Open final almost five weeks ago.
Djokovic led Serbia to the 2010 Davis Cup title.
“I am optimistic and I hope that I am going to play,” said the 11-time major winner. “I was a little sceptical but now all is going well.”—AFP
