The French team may have a slight edge with Tsonga and Monfils and the way they've been playing lately. However as redkop said Berdych and Stepanek have performed so well in Davis Cup.

Re: World Group semifinal: Czech Republic at France (September 12-14, 2014)

Interesting draw

R1 R. GASQUET v T. BERDYCH
R2 J. TSONGA v L. ROSOL
R3 J. BENNETEAU/G. MONFILS v R. STEPANEK/J. VESELY
R4 J. TSONGA v T. BERDYCH
R5 R. GASQUET v L. ROSOL

Ofc doubles will be with Berdych and R5 maybe Monfils

My guess is Monfils is being saved for crucial rubber 5. (Can't see him playing doubles). With all his unpredictability, I'd still want him rather than Gasquet in a winner take all match.
