Following a thigh injury sustained during the semi-final match in Dubai last Friday, Tomas was at home in Czech Republic and visited Dr. Pavel Kolar, the Czech Davis Cup physiotherapist. After medical examination, Tomas is fine to play in the Davis Cup Tie.
Tomas will arrive in the evening in Ostrava. He joins the trio Jan Hajek, Lukas Dlouhy and newcomer Jiri Vesely.
They will be playing against Andrey Golubev [ATP 44], Mikhail Kukushkin [ATP 62], Yuriy Schukin [ATP 127] And Evgeny Korolev [ATP 218] from March 4 To March 6 in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
Czech Davis Cup team already in Ostrava on Saturday.
Tomas will join them on Sunday.
In the Czech media (my translation)"Tomas called me yesterday morning and confirmed that he is ready to play all three days, including Saturday's double" said captain Jaroslav Navratil."I'm relieved, because I haven't slept well in the last few days"."It's almost certain that Tomas Berdych and Jan Hajek will play the singles, the double with Lukas Dlouhy and Tomas again. Jiri Vesely will gain experience, but it will be decided on Sunday, if I'll give him the opportunity to play" he added.
