"Dream come true" for Czechs, says Berdych

Tomas Berdych is hoping to lead Czech Republic to its first Davis Cup title in nearly 30 years when he lines up against Spain in the Final in December.

Berdych made his Davis Cup debut in 2003 and has since compiled an impressive 21-7 record. He believes this year's Final will be the biggest test of his career so far.

"Definitely it's going to be a dream come true if the miracle is going to happen and we can bring back the three points from Spain," said Berdych.

"For us and all of Czech Republic it's a great achievement so far. We're happy but not satisfied yet. In tennis, almost everything is possible so we're really looking forward to going there."

The Final, which is taking place at Barcelona's Palau Sant Jordi, will see Spain attempt to defend its 19-tie unbeaten record on clay - no prizes for guessing what surface the Spaniards chose for this fixture.

Berdych will more than likely team up with Radek Stepanek, a partnership that has served the Czechs well in recent years. In the semifinal against Croatia, the two players both won opening day singles rubbers in five sets before clinching the decisive doubles match.
