2010 Davis Cup Doubles: Berdych/Stepanek-Darcis/O. Rochus *gif*

Posted on March 6, 2010 at 5:02 PM




Order of Play  = Saturday, 6 March 2010 2:00 PM - Bree, Belgium


Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek have once again been brought in as the Czech Republic's doubles team as the visitors look to complete a 3-0 victory over Belgium in their Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group first round tie in Bree. They are taking on Steve Darcis and Olivier Rochus in Saturday's doubles rubber.


Berdych and Stepanek have been defeated only once in Davis Cup doubles, losing in last year's World Group Final to Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco in a match that saw Spain retain its Davis Cup title. They had previously won five consecutive Davis Cup doubles rubbers together.


It is therefore a tall order for the not-so-tall pairing of Darcis and Rochus, although the Belgians have won their one previous Davis Cup doubles together.
