LONDON (AP) - Novak Djokovic will lead Serbia in the Davis Cup final next month against a French team featuring Gael Monfils.

The International Tennnis Federation says Viktor Troicki, Janko Tipsarevic and Nenad Zimonjic were also selected by Serbia for the Dec. 3-5 matches on an indoor hard court in Belgrade.

The French team will also include Michael Llodra, Gilles Simon and Arnaud Clement. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is out with a knee injury.

Djokovic, at No. 3, is the highest-ranked player in the final. He has won all five of the singles matches he has played to lead Serbia to its first ever final.

Serbia has beaten the United States, Croatia and Czech Republic to earn a matchup against nine-time Davis Cup champion France.
