World number one Djokovic, who won the US Open on Monday, arrived in Serbia on Thursday jet-lagged and exhausted from his exertions in New York and said he might miss the opening match against David Nalbandian.

Djokovic said on his official website he had pulled out due to lower back and rib pain.

Janko Tipsarevic takes on Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro in Friday's second singles rubber as holders Serbia, who won their first Davis Cup last year with a 3-2 win over France, aim to reach their second successive final.
