London - Serbia will host France in an all-European Davis Cup final in December after the Serbs rallied to beat the Czech Republic 3-2 on Sunday.

Serbia, who were trailing 2-1 after Saturday's doubles, was able to level the best-of-five series when Novak Djokovic defeated Tomas Berdych 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in Sunday's first singles match.

Janko Tipsarevic then secured Serbia's first appearance in a Davis Cup final by beating Radek Stepanek 6-0, 7-6 (6), 6-4 in the deciding match.

France had already qualified for the December 3-5 final by taking an unassailable 3-0 lead in Saturday's doubles. They completed a 5-0 rout on Sunday.
