Well, Roger won't play but the Czech team also has to replace a player.
Stepanek has to undergo a back surgery and will be replaced in the team by Ivo Minar.
That makes the tie much tighter. If Stan plays like at AO, he can challenge Berdy. And I assume Rosol will be the other Czech singles player. Rosol can either even win Stan or lose to Chiudinelli. And whoever pairs Berdy in doubles isn't in Sexy's level, so that gives Switzerland some hope.
