PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: Tomas Berdych won all three points for the Czech Republic as they scored a 3-1 victory against Serbia in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas quarterfinal.
Janko Tipsarevic had opportunities to serve for both of the first two sets but Berdych creditted his mental strengths for his remarkable comeback to take them both in tiebreaks. The mental batttle was resumed in the third set when once again it went the distance only for the result to be repeated as the Czech No.1 triumphed 76(6) 76(6) 76(7).
Tipsarevic admitted after the match that while it was not close as he lost without winning a set he should have been capable of pushing deeper into the match, possibly even taking victory himself.
Czech captain Jaroslav Navratil feels that luck was on their side this weekend and he looks ahead to the semifinal weekend tie against Argentina.
