World Group, 2010 - 1st Round Belgium v Czech Republic 5-7 March 2010
Czech captain Jaroslav Navratil has decided to stick with the team that reached the Davis Cup finals last year for next month's first-round tie against Belgium.
Czech tennis federation president Ivo Kaderka said Friday that 14th-ranked Radek Stepanek will again be accompanied by Tomas Berdych, Jan Hajek and doubles specialist Lukas Dlouhy for the March 5-7 tie on indoor clay in Bree, Belgium.
The same team qualified for last year's finals after beating France, Argentina and Croatia.
Kaderka said there was "no need to change the winning team."
The Czechs lost 5-0 in the final, as Spain defended its title in November.
The Czech Republic won its previous tie against Belgium 3-2 in Ostrava in 2008.
