GENEVA, SWITZERLAND: Tomas Berdych claimed the vital victory over Stanislas Wawrinka in the fourth rubber of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas first round tie in Geneva to put the defending champions through against a plucky Swiss side. After the match he described how Wawrinka is "not one of the opponent's that I like to play" but that today was the best of his peformances against him.

Wawrinka was understandably dissapointed with the result but could take some heart from the record-breaking acheivements he was involved in. Czech Captain Jaroslav Navratil also looks ahead to a quarterfinal in Kazakhstan where he hopes to have the services of Radek Stepanek.
