I expect the Czechs to win at home.
If they advance, they play against Russia away or against Serbia (then I don't know if it goes to draw or if it will be played in Serbia, since the last meeting was in 1991, Czechoslovakia lost to Yugoslavia playing at home).

I don't understand why the Czech coach always choses his singles players for the doubles. It happened last time too. Stepanek probably needs a rest. Or is Dlouhy injured or something?

I don't understand either. Stepanek, however, is a very good doubles player.
