Davis Cup F: Berdych/Stepanek (CZE) def Granollers/Lopez (ESP) 3-6 7-5 7-5 6-3

Didn't post this in the doubles forum because it won't attract any attention.

The final is in Berd's hands now.

Far from over, but I guess there's a 3/4 chance Czechs win one of two 50-50 matches



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

Granollers-Lopez are fun to watch, but the Czechs were very solid, esp. Berdych, who has become so strong mentally for a few years.

It's not more in Berdych's hands now than before, it's in the hands of all the players.

Ferrer-Berdych may be a great match, yes.

And if there's a fifth match (which I rather think), Almagro-Stepanek will be enthralling.

Damn it! Now the title is on Almagro's racket
Oh well, I'm sure Ferrer would be happy with a victory to tie the score too.

I was almost to lose my faith after the 1st set but thank God Czechs took this match. Now Tomas, don't lose any DC ties this year!

good win for the czechs, far from over tho.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Re: Davis Cup F: Berdych/Stepanek (CZE) def Granollers/Lopez (ESP) 3-6 7-5 7-5 6-3

Berdych and Stepanek have now won 12 doubles matches out of 13 together in the Davis Cup since they first teamed up in 2007, including 4 wins out of 4 this year. Very impressive stuff. Their only defeat together was against Spain on clay in 2009 final.

The Czechs taking a 2-1 lead into the final day was the best possible scenario for me. Hopefully they can get the job done tomorrow and win their first ever Davis Cup title as an independent nation, and seal the Hopman-Fed-Davis Cup hat-trick.

Nothing against the Spanish team, but they have won this competition 3 times in the last 4 years, and 5 times in the last 12. It's time for someone else to win it.

Really impressed by these two guys and big congrats on their 12-1 doubles record in Davis Cup.

Can history be rewritten and one country gets the Hopman, Fed and Davis Cup titles in a single year ?

It's so close yet so far.

Good luck to all players tomorrow.
