  • Tie Summary

    Czech Republic continued its march towards a third consecutive Davis Cup by BNP Paribas title, with a comfortable 5-0 victory away in Japan.

    Weakened by the injury to Kei Nishikori and illness of Go Soeda, Japan's under-strength team put up a good fight but were ultimately unable to match the Czechs' experience at this level. Wins for Lukas Rosol (playing as Czech No. 1 for this tie in the absence of Tomas Berdych) and Radek Stepanek put Czech Republic in a strong position after the first day of play, before the two combined in the doubles to secure the victory with a straight sets win.
