  • Tie Summary

    These two sides have played once before, in Czech Republic in 2011, and it was Kazakhstan who caused an upset, winning both of the reverse singles matches to claim victory. Czech Republic, last year's champions, will be looking to gain revenge and move into the semifinals.

    Kazakhstan made it through to the quarterfinals with a 3-1 win over Austria in Astana. Andrey Golubev and Evgeny Korolev led the Kazakh attack and both scored wins over the much higher-ranked Jurgen Melzer. Austria's doubles specialists pulled a point back, ensuring the tie went live onto the final day but that was it.

    The defending champions faced a tough opener in Switzerland, and it proved to be as tough as expected. Stanislas Wawrinka refused to back down, but in the end could not do enough to stop the Czechs. The highlight of the first round was undoubtedly the doubles rubber which went 24-22 in the final set and lasted 7 hours and 1 minute.
