Stepanek hits the heights

November 18, 2013 09:35:14 UK

Radek Stepanek rated the Czech Republic's victory in the Davis Cup final in Serbia as the highest point of his lengthy career.

The 34-year-old made history by becoming the first man to win the decisive fifth rubber in consecutive Davis Cup finals, with his 6-3 6-1 6-1 victory over Dusan Lajovic silencing the majority of the crowd in Belgrade.

Winning two Davis Cups tops them all.

And Stepanek, who has won both the Australian Open and the US Open in doubles, was in no doubt how high his latest achievement was, having helped the Cezch retain their Davis Cup crown.

"I don't think words can describe it," he told British Eurosport.

Asked to rank his heroics in the Serbian capital against his other successes, Stepanek added: "Definitely the highest.

"Both of the years, to win the Davis Cup is so far my biggest achievement.

"I got in the top 10 in singles, the top 10 in doubles, I won two Grand Slams (in doubles), and played the Masters in singles and doubles - but winning two Davis Cups tops them all."

Before seeing off Lajovic, Stepanek had helped Tomas Berdych to an important win the doubles rubber on Saturday, which gave the Czechs a crucial 2-1 lead going into the final day.

Berdych can be backed at 41.00 to win the Australian Open early next year, with Novak Djokovic, who won both his singles rubbers against the Czechs, 1.80 and Andy Murray 9.00.
