Tennis: Radek Štěpánek to kick off Davis Cup semifinals against Serbia’s Djokovič


Thursday’s draw for the tennis Davis Cup semifinales determined that Radek Štepánek will face Novak Djokovič of Serbia in the first single in Belgrade on Friday; Czech tennis number one Tomáš Berdych will then play Serbia’s Janko Tipsarevič. Czech Davis Cup team captain Jaroslav Navrátil said it was not important who will play who but that he hoped that come Sunday the Czechs would have three points. Bookmakers however favour the Serbs, with around 1.4 to 1 odds in the hosts’ favour.
