Serbia beats Czech Republic to win Team World CupMay 27, 2012, 10:29 pm
DUESSELDORF, Germany (AP) — Serbia defeated the Czech Republic 3-0 on Saturday to win the World Team Cup for the second time.
Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki, who were both part of Serbia’s winning team in 2009, both won their singles matches to give their country an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match tournament at the Rochus Club.
The No. 8-ranked Tipsarevic pulled ahead first after defeating the No. 7-ranked Tomas Berdych 7-5, 7-6 (8).
"The match could have gone either way," Tipsarevic said. "I was a little bit lucky."
Troicki had a poor start against Radek Stepanek and lost the first. The Serb regrouped in the second to wrap up the match in two hours.
In the doubles match, that had no effect on the overall result, Tipsarevic teamed up with Nenad Zimonjic to complete Serbia’s dominance with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Berdych and Frantisek Cermak.
