Czechs one win from Davis Cup glory

November 18, 2012 08:33:27 UK
Tomas Berdych has won every match in the Davis Cup so far this season.

A shock doubles success has left the Czech Republic needing just one win from the two final-day singles rubbers to win the Davis Cup final against Spain.

The hosts gambled in Prague by pairing Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek in Saturday's doubles and the duo, who had both played in the singles on Friday, responded with a magnificent 3-6 7-5 7-5 6-3 win over ATP Tour champions Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez.

I'm ready to do it. I'll try to come with my strong game.

Tomas Berdych

That gave the Czechs a 2-1 advantage over the holders going into the final day, when Berdych is scheduled to take on David Ferrer, before Stepanek faces Nicolas Almagro.

Berdych has been the Czech talisman throughout their campaign, having won ten matches out of ten - seven in singles and three in doubles - and he is 2.37 to defeat Ferrer and 7.00 to do so in five sets, while the Czechs are 1.50 to win the Davis Cup.

The world number six is excited about the prospect of sealing ultimate glory for his country, whose women also won the Fed Cup a couple of weeks ago.

He said after helping Stepanek to a potentially crucial doubles victory: "It's incredible, it's just one point. We'll do everything for that.

"I'm ready to do it. I'll try to come with my strong game and with the crowd at my back, it would be a good combination to make it."
