Czechs secure their place in Davis Cup Finals this autumn

The Czech men's tennis team beat Israel on Sunday at the Davis Cup qualifiers in Vendryně, North Moravia, to advance to the group stage of the annual competition. The decisive third point was won by Tomáš Macháč and Adam Pavlásek in their doubles match against the Israeli pair Edan Leshem and Daniel Cukierman, who withdrew from the match at 4:1 due to Cukierman getting injured.

On Saturday, Jakub Menšík defeated Yishai Oliel 6-1, 7-6 (7-4), and Jiří Lehečka beat Cukierman 6-1, 7-6 (7-2). Czechia's place in the Davis Cup Finals this autumn is now guaranteed, as it is leading 3-0 in the qualifier.

Last year, Czechia made it to the quarter-finals of the Davis Cup before being knocked out by Australia.
