The Czech Republic is leading 3:0 over Belgium in the first round of the Davis Cup in tennis and is advancing to the quarterfinals.
In the first two matches in Ostrava on Friday, both Tomáš Berdych and Radek Štěpánek beat Kristof Vliegen and Steve Darcis, respectively, in three sets. The two Czechs then on Saturday faced the Belgian players Rochus and Vliegen in the double, and won after a five-set battle 6:7, 7:6, 7:5, 5:7 and 6:4, securing the Czech triumph. The 3:0 score means the Czech team advances to the quarterfinals of the Davis Cup irrespective of the results of the two remaining games between the Czech Republic and Belgium.
