Stepanek won't play as he has to undergo a surgery on his back.
He will be replaced by Ivo Minar.

Czech will still win. Berdych will win both matches and Berdych/Dlouhy will win doubles (that's if Dlouhy was selected)

Please note the doubles rubber between Tomas Berdych and Lukas Rosol (CZE) and Marco Chiudinelli and Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) lasted 7 hours 1 minute and is the longest Davis Cup match on record (in terms of duration). The previous longest was the fifth rubber of the 1982 World Group quarterfinal between John McEnroe (USA) and Mats Wilander (SWE), which lasted 6 hours 22 minutes.

Watch past Davis Cup Match (Switzerland vs Czech Republic)?
 
Hello,

Does anyone know where I can watch past Davis Cup matches. The one I want to see is the the 7 hour doubles match between Switzerland and Czech Republic from February 2nd. Specifically, I want to re-watch the last set.

Are there any places where I can watch this? I would gladly pay for access to this past tennis match. I really want to see the whole last set, not just the highlights. Perhaps it is not online yet, but will come online? In that case, where?

The reason I ask is because I was ballgirl during this last set. It was really a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience and I really want to see the match somewhere and possibly save it as it's an experience that I'll want to remember for the rest of my life.

Any help on where I can find this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

I don't know where to watch the full match. Perhaps t3nnis.tv, but you need an invite to access that site.

Are you really American?

Interesting! I didn't notice, what was the average age of the ball 'humans' (for lack of a better word)?
