The Argentinians during a training session... The Czechs shrouded in mystery.
As soon as the Argentinians end their training session, the stadium CEZ Arena is completely evacuated and doors are closed. Czech Davis Cup captain Jaroslav Navratil does not allow anyone to witness the practices of his team which creates some suspicions on Radek Stepanek suffering from some 'discomfort' in his knee. Radek Stepanek still wears a bandage below his left knee, à-la-Rafael Nadal.
The draw will take place tomorrow Thursday at 12:00 (local time) and we will know who will open the Singles matches: Del Potro, Berdych, Stepanek or Monaco.
The matches begin on Friday at 3:00 PM (local time). Although it is not officially confirmed the Order of Play for Friday could be as follows:
1) Juan Martin Del Potro vs Radek Stepanek (or Ivo Minar replacing Radek Stepanek)
2) Juan Monaco vs Tomas Berdych
