Czechs aiming for team double

November 14, 2012 12:39:48 UK
Tomas Berdych will head the Czech Republic bid for Davis Cup glory.

The Czech Republic can complete a notable double by defeating Spain in the final of the Davis Cup in Prague this weekend.

The country's women have already won the Fed Cup final against Serbia and should the men see off Spain, the Czechs would become the first nation since the USA in 1990 to win both titles in the same year.

Our three greatest advantages are the choice of surface, the home crowd and Rafael Nadal's absence.

Radek Stepanek

Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek will spearhead the Czech bid for glory on a fast, indoor surface which is expected to favour the home side, who were demolished 5-0 by Spain in the 2009 final on the clay in Valencia.

And Stepanek, whose team are 1.50 to win the final, believes that the Czechs have three advantages, stating: "Our three greatest advantages are the choice of surface, the home crowd and Rafael Nadal's absence."

Spain ace David Ferrer, whose side are 2.62 to win the competition for the fourth time in five years, also believes that the indoor surface will even things out between the two teams.

He added: "The court is the fastest of the year, we never play on a faster court.

"The court will be better for the Czechs than us, but it is the final of the Davis Cup so I'm sure it is going to be very close."

Ferrer and Nicolas Almagro are set to play the singles rubbers in the absence of the injured Nadal, with ATP World Tour champions Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez teaming up for the doubles.
