Repeat line-up for Czechs

Czech captain Jaroslav Navratil revealed on national radio on Friday that he plans to bring Tomas Berdych, Radek Stepanek, Jan Hajek and Lukas Dlouhy to Barcelona for the Spain v Czech Republic 2009 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group Final on 4-6 December. The four players were the winning combination against Croatia in September's semifinal.

World No. 12 Stepanek and No. 20 Berdych collectively won all nine rubbers this year to take Czech Republic to the final, and will have the back-up of two-time Grand Slam doubles champion Dlouhy, and Hajek, who made his Davis Cup debut in this year's semifinals.

Defending champion Spain, who upset Argentina on home soil last year, is attempting to win its fourth Davis Cup title while Czech Republic is looking for its first since last reaching the final in 1980.
