  1. 6-4 - GAME SET MATCH! Djokovic has done it! On the Monfils serve he wins the game to 30 and has ripped his shirt off, thrown it into the crowd and is revelling in the boisterous celebrations among the Serbia fans.

  2. 5-4 - Djokovic holds to 15 and Monfils is serving to stay in the match.

  3. 4-4 - BREAK! Unbelievable. Monfils is unable to hold his serve again as Djokovic pulls some wonderful shots out of the bag. Good hands at the net sees his winning angled volley escape Monfils. Back with serve. For now at least...

  4. 3-4 - BREAK! Monfils trounces the Djokovic serve again and takes the second of his two break points with an outstanding forehand winner down the line. Djokovic smashes his racket into the ground, but that won't get him anywhere. Now, can Monfils hold this time?

  5. 3-3 - Monfils holds this time and we are back with service in the third.

  6. 3-2 - Djokovic succeeds where Monfils failed - in following a break with a hold. Monfils is kicking stuff and feeling generally sorry for himself. Djokovic is back on track.

  7. 2-2 - BREAK! Typical of Monfils's game that he has failed to consolidate his break as Djokovic breaks back. The crowd are loving it, Monfils isn't.

  8. 1-2 - BREAK! Monfils gets his first break after going up 0-30, then at 30-40 Djokovic goes long with a forehand and Monfils has a glimmer ofhope here.

  9. 1-1 - Monfils double faults twice in a row and is the victim of an unlucky net cord but saves two Djokovic break points to draw level in the set. Good stuff from Monfils but he has his back against the wall constantly here.

  10. 1-0 - Djokovic takes the opening game of the set again with his serve looking absolutely impenetrable. Monfils has his work cut out if he is to prevent the Serb from coasting to victory...

  11. 6-2 - SET! Djokovic punches the air after winning a monumental rally to set up three set points, sending the crowd bananas. He clinches the second of those set points and has taken a giant stride towards victory. The players are taking a break so while they prepare for the third set, why not follow me on Twitter at

  12. 5-2 - Djokovic consolidates his break with a service game to 15. The Serb is looking very very good and is now just one game away from opening up a surely unassailable two set lead.

  13. 4-2 - BREAK! Djokovic clinches a crucial break of Monfils's serve as the Frenchman goes long with his backhand. It's been coming and Monfils has a mountain to climb now.

  14. 3-2 - Djokovic holds without breaking a sweat as Monfils is beginning to look tired from his exertions on his own serve.

  15. 2-2 - Monfils is taken to Deuce again by Djokovic and this will surely take its toll on the Frenchman who has managed to hold this time. But for how much longer?

  16. 2-1 - A couple of unforced errors by Djokovic but he still gets through his service game with relative ease.

  17. 1-1 - Monfils holds on his serve but Djokovic takes him to Deuce.

  18. 1-0 - Another love service game for Djokovic, his third of the match.

  19. 6-2 - SET! Monfils concedes some casual points to Djokovic, who gets himself two set points on the Monfils serve. The Serb clinches the second and leaves Monfils face down on the court with a grazed knee by the looks of it.

  20. 5-2 - Monfils unsettles Djokovic for the first time with two outright winners to force a break point but, at Deuce, Djokovic produces a delicate drop shot which Monfils can't handle. Djokovic has himself outof a hole there, to the delight of the crowd.

  21. 4-2 - Monfils has come out strongly on his serve after a word with his captain. He clinches the game to 15.

  22. 4-1 - Djokovic holds to consolidate his break. There is only one player in this.

  23. 3-1 - BREAK! Monfils concedes on his serve to 30 as Djokovic draws first blood with a break. Monfils gave Djokovic hope with an inexplicable shot at 15-15 that saw him miss the ball completely. Djokovic is in the zone, Monfils is nowhere near the zone.

  24. 2-1 - Another love service game for Djokovic, who is dictating play right now. Impressive by Djokovic.

  25. 1-1 - Monfils holds to 15 clinching the game with a smash, but the pressure on the Frenchman is evident already. Not quite as fluent of a hold as the Serb's but a hold nonetheless.

  26. 1-0 - Djokovic has sent out a message to Monfils with a dominant love service game to start. Now Monfils's turn...

  27. 12:05 - The duo are out and warming up. What a spectacle in store: should Nole defeat the temperamental Frenchman, the deciding clash will be Janko Tipsarevic v Gilles Simon.

  28. 12:00 - The 17,000-strong crowd is fervent inside the venue as they await their hero. Not so patriotic are the line judges... Serbia captain slams 'unpatriotic' line judges

  29. 11:55 - That means world number three Novak Djokovic, undoubtedly the star performer here at the Belgrade Arena, must beat Gael Monfils in the first singles rubber of the day starting shortly.

  30. 11:50 - Serbia were stunned by a French comeback in the doubles yesterday. France comeback stuns Serbia

  31. 11:45 - Welcome to coverage of the third and final day of action from the Davis Cup final.
