Serbia will begin their title defence against India away from the Belgrade Arena, the venue that saw them lift their first Davis Cup trophy.
They have selected the Spens Sports Center, located in the second largest Serbian city of Novi Sad, as the venue for the World Group first round tie against India to be held from March 4.
The Spens Sports Center, mainly a basketball and volleyball venue, will host a Davis Cup tie for the first time. The Serbs have decided to stick to their favourite playing surface --indoor hard - for the tie.
India are meeting Serbia, who started playing as an individual nation from 2007, for the first time in the competition. India secured their place in the elite 16 for the second straight
year by defeating Brazil 3-2 at home in the World Group play-offs.
