Davis Cup 1927 - India Vs Yugoslavia and Serbia

Karoly sent me this nice card which was issued in Serbia during the Davis Cup Matches between India and Serbia played at NoviSad from 4 to 6 June 2011. The card has A nice postmark of the Davis Cup match at NoviSad. The card also displays the two teams that played against each other in 1927, namely Yugoslavia and India.
In the 2011 edition, the 2013 finalists Serbia avoided relegation with a dramatic 3-2 victory over India. Despite missing a number of their star players, Serbia came out on top against an Indian side blended with experience and youth. Serbia and India were meeting for the first time.
Dusan Lajovic got the Serbs off to a perfect start with a 63 62 75 win over Yuki Bhambri. Filip Krajinovic then upset Somdev Devvarman 61 46 63 62 to give Serbia a 2-0 lead after the opening day's play.
Indian tennis legend Leander Paes then teamed up with Rohan Bopanna to earn a dramatic victory over Ilija Bozoljac and Nenad Zimonjic, coming from two sets down to win 16 67(4) 63 63 86 and keep the tie alive.
Devvarman then defeated Lajovic 1-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, to send the tie to a deciding fifth rubber. In case the tie had not been dramatic enough, the final rubber was played on the following Monday due to rain. It was Krajinovic who proved to be the hero of the day, defeating Bhambri 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 to book Serbia's place in the 2015 World Group.

In the 1927 edition of the Davis Cup Tennis Tournament in the Europe Zone, India defeated Yugoslavia 3-0 in the Second Round. The match was played at the Zagreb Tennis Club Courts. India were subsequently beaten by Denmark in the Third Round 5-0 in Copenhagen.  Later in the World Challenge round played at Germantown Cricket Club grass courts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States 8–10 September 1927, France beat the USA 3-2, ending a 6 year run by the USA.
