A pretty much unexpected win. Although Bozo's talent for the game is quite a bit above his ranking. Under-commitment and later injuries kept him out of contention. Hope he can draw on this experience and still make something out of his singles career.
Kudos to the crowd in Boise, showed more class than at some other tennis venues of higher reputation.

That was a hell of a match!!! Well done to Serbia. After the Americans leveled at 2 sets all, I though Serbia had lost their chance but they were the better team and deserved the win. Bozoljac is inconsistent but he's fun to watch.

Why? Weren't the Bryan brothers trying to win? The only diff I can see is that on the ATP tour the match would have ended much earlier - when the Serbian duo won the first two sets. Instead they had to go 5 sets and then into overtime - 4 1/2 hours.

In that sense Davis Cup is much tougher. With the lone exception of Wimbledon, even in Grand Slams doubles is still just 2 out of 3 sets.

This was just tremendous fun to watch, and it still would be even with a different outcome, despite the high stakes. Literally all tennis has to offer could've be seen here - great points, laughable shanks, extreme clutchness, choking, drama, you name it. My stream died at the very end, to top it all
This one goes mostly to Courier, or whoever chose that surface anyway - it made Bozoljatz almost unbreakable, unplayable on serve. Just what Serbian team needed.
Great timing for such a match to happen, to show people why is DC such a great competition.

I totally agree! I really thought the Bryans would win that last set. I do think that DC tends to bring out the best in some of the lesser players. I was very happy for the Serbs, especially Bozoljac, who I never heard of before.

You have a captain/coach there with you at every changeover. You have a whole group of people/teammates behind your bench cheering you on (definitely more than your usual team). You are playing for your country, not yourself although there is personal gratification. Well, you won't have the #1 player of the world jumped on you and hugged you tight after winning a regular tour match.

For mentally tough players like Djokovic, it's not much difference. For less tough players, like Troicki, I can see he plays better in DC than in tour. I do not follow Bozoljac enough to draw a definite conclusion like the one I made of Troicki but I can see Bozoljac is a pretty inconsistent player from this match and there are two aspects for inconsistency, mental and technical.

To be fair, dn't know by what date they had to decide the surface, but I'm pretty sure at that time Janko was still in the team, nobody thought much of Bozo then. Even until the last minute it looked like Nole would step in and play the doubles, though he sucks there and all. That Bozoljac will play in the end and this well, I don't think anyone could've predicted it

You have your points, however there is also a great deal more pressure, tension and potential for choking in Davis Cup. Suddenly it's not about you anymore. It's about millions of other people, your countrymen, their hopes and dreams of honor riding on your performance, against the #1 Doubles team EVER. Especially if you are like Bozoljac - from a small tight knit country like Serbia, who give tremendous attention and honor to their winning athletes, the pressure is intense.

Did you see all the Serbs who turned up in Boise ID to support their team? Commentator Gimmelstob (tennis channel) said there were a thousand Serbs there.

No surprise, I don't know Idaho well, but I doubt they have many chances of cheering for Serbia there, in any sport

They are the underdog in this match and nobody expect them to win which ease lots of pressure IMO. US teams expected Novak to play and believed when Bozoljac showed up, They thought Serbia threw in the towel and focus on winning the singles today.

Honestly, how many people expected this win before the match started?
