The Serbian men's national tennis team represents Serbia in the Davis Cup and the ATP Cup, both tennis competitions. Since June 2006, the team has played under the name of Serbia, following the split of Yugoslavia.

Serbia won the Davis Cup title for the first and only time in 2010, defeating France with 3:2 in the final as host nation.[1][2] The team was a runner-up in 2013, when they were defeated by the Czech Republic with 2:3 in the final in Belgrade.[3]

The team also had three semifinals Davis Cup appearances (in 2011, 2017, and 2021) and four quarterfinals Davis Cup appearances (in 2012, 2015, 2016, and 2019).

In 2020, Serbia won the inaugural ATP Cup.[4]
