PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: The Czech doubles team of Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek are difficult to beat - they have lost just one of their 13 rubbers together - and they enacted a plan to perfection against Spain's Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez.

The Czechs won 36 75 75 63 in three hours 18 minutes to put the home side 2-1 up after the second day and revealed in their on-court interview that both are ready to perform in the singles tomorrow.

Stepanek also explains the decision behind wearing his lion shirt and there is reaction from both captains and the Spanish team.
