Serbia chose indoor clay.

Serbia picks indoor clay against U.S.

LONDON -- The United States will face Serbia on an indoor clay surface in Belgrade for its first-round Davis Cup match next year.

The venues for six of the eight first-round World Group matches on March 5-7 were announced Monday by the International Tennis Federation.

The Serbia-U.S. match will be played at the 20,000-seat Belgrade Arena.

Defending champion Spain has been granted an extension until Jan. 11 to choose the venue for its opener against Switzerland, which could pit Rafael Nadal against Roger Federer.

France will play Germany in Toulon, Russia hosts India in Moscow and Sweden faces Argentina in Stockholm -- all on indoor hard courts. Chile will host Israel on outdoor clay in Coquimbo.

Croatia will play Ecuador in Varazdin on an indoor surface still to be decided. The venue and surface for Belgium's home match against the Czech Republic will be confirmed by the end of the year.

The ITF said all venues are subject to a site inspection and final confirmation by the international body.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
