Bangalore: A sleepless night following rain-induced suspension of play and overnight change of schedules seemed to have done little to dampen Filip Krajinovic who won the decisive fifth rubber to help Serbia beat India 3-2 in their Davis Cup World Group playoff here on Monday afternoon.

The match was halted on Sunday night following rains with Krajinovic leading 6-3, 4-4. With the match scheduled to resume at 12 noon Monday, it forced cancellation of air tickets and attendant alterations in the plans of teams and players besides support staff and match officials.

"I couldn't sleep last night as I kept replaying the points. The pressure was very much there and it wasn't easy, but my plan was to win the second set rather than it being 1-1. So, I did well to break him first thing today," said the 22-year old Krajinovic after his 6-3, 6-4, 6-4, win against Yuki Bhambri in the second reverse singles that helped Serbia win the tie 3-2.
