Berdych, Stepanek to represent Czechs in Davis Cup final

by: AP November 06, 2012

PRAGUE -- The Czech Republic will rely on Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek in this month's Davis Cup final.

They also led the Czechs when they were swept in the 2009 final by Spain in Barcelona.

Berdych and Stepanek also are likely to team up for the doubles.

Lukas Rosol, who upset Rafael Nadal in the second round of Wimbledon, and Ivo Minar also are in the Czech squad for the Nov. 16-18 tie on an indoor hard-court at Prague's O2 Arena.

Spain is seeking its fourth Davis Cup title in five years.

The Czechs won their only Davis Cup as Czechoslovakia in 1980. They have lost their last three ties against Spain.
