Djokovic sends Serbia into Davis Cup quarter-finals

Novak Djokovic beat France's Benoit Paire to send Serbia into the Davis Cup quarter-finals The result means France are eliminated from the competition and Argentina progress as one of the best second-placed teams. Djokovic coasted through the first set, breaking Paire early and holding on serve, before breaking early in the second and taking full control. The Serbian world no 2 then breezed to a second set victory to take the match, barely breaking a sweat and looking very comfortable on court as he put his country into the next round. Serbia's Filip Krajinovic had early given Serbia 1-0 lead by winning their opening singles rubber, beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-5 7-6. Serbia and Argentina join Russia, Canada, Spain, Australia and Germany in the quarters. If GB win their decisive doubles rubber they will advance and take the last spot.
