French Davis Cup skipper warns of 'dangerous' Serbia
France captain Yannick Noah has warned against under-estimating a Serbia team shorn of its top stars in this weekend's Davis Cup semi-final. France, seeking a 10th Davis Cup title but first in 16 years, are strong favourites to prevail in Lille to secure a final against either Belgium or Australia. That is largely because the Serbs must make do without former world number one and 12-time Grand slam winner Novak Djokovic, Viktor Troicki and Janko Tipsarevic. But Noah said: "Even if Serbia doesn't have its highest ranked players they've got nothing to lose and so they can prove very dangerous. The hosts are led by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (18th in the ATP rankings) and Lucas Pouille (22nd) in the singles, and Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut in the doubles.
