Novak Djokovic takes Troicki's place in doubles against Croatia

Kraljevo: World number one Novak Djokovic has replaced Viktor Troicki as Nenad Zimonjic`s partner for Serbia in Saturday`s doubles against Croatia in their Davis Cup world group first-round tie, the International Tennis Federation said.

Serbia, the 2010 winners, are 2-0 up after Djokovic enjoyed a straight-sets win over Mate Delic in Friday`s opening singles before Troicki fought back from two sets down to beat 18-year old Borna Coric. 

Although Troicki was initially named to play alongside Zimonjic and said he was fit after a gruelling clash with Coric, Serbia coach Bogdan Obradovic opted for Djokovic who blew away Delic in just 89 minutes.
