Belgium names squad for Davis Cup tie against Czech Republic

The Belgian tennis federation has named the four players to play the Czech Republic in the first round Davis Cup tie from March 5-7. The four strong squad is made up of brothers Olivier and Christophe Rochus, Xavier Malisse and Steve Darcis. Olivier Rochus is the highest placed player at 58 in the current ATP rankings. The tie will be the first test of the Czech team’s ambition to go one better than in the previous Davis Cup competition when they lost all five matches against Spain. The World Group tie will be held at Bree in Belgium.
