Quite impressive, yes. Also, they've done it with no real stars and also less depth in their squad than several other nations. Well done!

Well, great news that. Hope Canada make the semis today. Leading the Davis cup and Fed cup rankings in nice, but I still feel sad the Czechs just missed out on direct qualification to the Olympics in curling. We were 1 winn short of that in Victoria, BC.

Great stuff. Well deserved given how Berdych and Stepanek have devoted so much of their careers to Davis Cup.

I think they'll defend their title. Such an easy path now.

Well if you have a two man team that really steps up. Specially Berdych, you have players like Murray and Federer who only plays for themselves, and you have Berdych who is dedicated. He has single-handedly carried his team with most of their ties.

To be honest, lots of luck and dedication was needed to clinch the No.1 spot.
On the other hand, Czech Rep./Czechoslovakia has lost a bunch of Davis and Fed Cups in the past, because Lendl, Navratilova and Hingis left the country due to communism and ended up as foreign citizens.
As for other small countries, Serbia has been also doing great recently in both men and women.
Now it's time for Aussies, Swedes and other little powerhouses to step it up.

LOL, do you really care about curling that much? If you're into winter sports, check this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVqwOjCsTD4

Czech is playing great tennis in last few years.

SF matches are Argentina - Czech , Serbia - Canada right ?

“Does Djokovic resemble myself?” Agassi said. “No, he is even better. He defends really well, while I struggled more in that element of the game. Novak looks totally relaxed when defending, completely calm and the quality of his return is incredible. He is also extremely flexible in his game, which is facilitated by his ability to anticipate his rival’s moves. That is why I think he is a much more versatile player than I was and he is also much more athletic.”

Well done by Czechs, completely deserved.

There may countries that have more depth but two excellent players is enough in DC. That's just fair for smaller countries. And even then bigger countries can rest their singles players and have specialists for doubles like Spain. But last year's final showed tennis isn't only clay and slow HCs, Czechs are better fast surface players than Spaniards. If only we'd have those fast courts in slams and Berdych could be the first Czech men's singles GS champ in years.
