Berdych joins Davis Cup team ahead of Netherlands clash

Tennis star Tomáš Berdych has joined the Czech Davis Cup team in Ostrava ahead of a first round tie with the Netherlands in the city next weekend. Berdych flew to the Czech Republic from Australia, where he reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open for the first time. The world number seven is considering whether to quit the Davis Cup team after the Czech Republic won the competition twice in a row. He said on Monday that he hoped to help the Czechs to a tenth straight win in the competition and then would “see”.
