PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: Ilija Bozoljac and Nenad Zimonjic did not have the best of matches on Saturday as they went down 64 62 76(4) to Radek Stepanek and Tomas Berdych in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas quarterfinal.

The result leaves Serbia on the brink of exiting the competition as they trail 2-1 but Zimonjic is still confident that Janko Tipsarevic can cause an upset against Berdych in the first reverse singles on Sunday to keep the tie alive.

The Serbian pairing were understandably disappointed with their performance and doubles star Zimonjic admitted that having a regular partner for Davis Cup would help but refused to use the situation as an excuse for his surprisingly poor record in the competition.

The winning Czech double pair talk about their excellent doubles record in Davis Cup and, despite feeling tired, look ahead to tomorrow's decisive day.

He joined The Times at 21 before moving to the Sunday Telegraph where he provided worldwide coverage of tennis and football. As ghost writer to John McEnroe for six years, Clive learned that sport, far from being a matter of life and death, was, in fact, much more serious than that.
