The Czech Republic take on champions Spain in the Davis Cup final this weekend and have an opportunity to accomplish a rare double
The Czech Republic take on champions Spain in the Davis Cup final this weekend and have an opportunity to accomplish a rare double, after the nation's ladies won the women's equivalent - the Fed Cup - two weeks ago. Livestreamingsport.com has now secured officially licensed live streams of the Davis Cup and shows tennis fans how to watch free coverage of the Davis Cup final live streaming on legitimate sites like bet365.
The Czech women's team defeated Serbia at the O2 Arena in Prague in the Fed Cup final a fortnight ago, which once again is the venue for the Davis Cup decider. The hosts, who are bidding to become the first country to win the Davis Cup and Fed Cup in the same season in 22 years, will be hoping a raucous home crowd and a fast hard court surface will give them the edge.
World number six Tomas Berdych captains the Czech a side that also contains Stepanek, Lukas Rosol and Ivo Minar.
Berdych, who competed at last week's ATP World Tour Finals in London, appeared confident ahead of the clash telling reporters in Prague, "The final in Barcelona [in 2009] we were in a completely different position and all that was against us is now going to be on our side."
Spain are vying for their fourth Davis Cup triumph in five years and thumped the Czechs 5-0 on clay in that final in Barcelona three years ago, but will be without the services of injured former world number one and talisman Rafael Nadal for this one.
In Nadal's absence, Spain will be led by world number five David Ferrer, who is expecting a close encounter. The 30-year-old told the media this week, "The court will be better for the Czechs than us but it is the final of the Davis Cup, so I'm sure it is going to be very close."
Nicolas Almagro, Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez complete the Spanish line up in the Czech capital.
Live streaming of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas final gets underway at 13:00 GMT on Friday afternoon.
