BELGRADE--- Novak Djokovic and Tomas Berdych
both did what was expected of them to leave the
Davis Cup final between Serbia and defending
champion Czech Republic level at 1-1 after the open-
Djokovic overcame some early nerves to beat Radek
Stepanek 7-5, 6-1, 6-4 in the first singles match and
Berdych then swept past rookie Dusan Lajovic 6-3,
6-4, 6-3 on the indoor hard court at Belgrade Arena.
With their formidable 13-1 record in Davis Cup
doubles, Berdych and Stepanek have a chance to give
the Czechs the lead in the best-of-five series today.
It was still unclear whether Djokovic would play dou-
bles or rest for tomorrow s reverse singles.
Djokovic earned his 23rd consecutive victory since
losing to Rafael Nadal in the US Open final in Sep-
tember but struggled a bit in the first set. He broke
Stepanek to go up 4-2 but had to save two break
points in the next game and failed to serve out the
set at 5-3, when he committed a series of errors.
However, he broke again in the 12th game to take
"I was a bit nervous in the first set," Djokovic said.
"It was very important to win that one against high-
Serbia, Czech Republic tied 1-1 in Davis Cup
quality player like Radek."
The second-ranked Serb held serve the
rest of the match --- saving seven break
points in all, while converting five of six he
"Whenever I would face (break points) I
would come up with some big serves,"
Djokovic said. "I think that is what helped
me stay confident in those moments."
Stepanek said Djokovic was serving
"tremendously consistently," which pre-
vented him from getting another break.
"The first set was really high quality, and
so was the third," the Czech veteran said.
"His defense is the best in the world, he
proved that with his movement that he
showed around the court. He always makes
you play an extra shot."
Berdych broke once in each of the first
two sets, and twice in the third to wrap up
the win 2 hours, 54 minutes against Lajovic.
The 23-year-old Serb, who has a 5-12 record
on the ATP tour, replaced Janko Tipsarevic,
who missed the final with a heel injury.
"It was a tough one, playing the guy I
actually saw for the first time on court,"
Berdych said. "He had nothing to lose. These
situations are not easy. I am glad I was able
to make it happen in straight sets."
The Czechs will likely need a win in the
doubles, as Berdych faces Djokovic in the
reverse singles tomorrow.
"When you look at Novak and how he
is playing it s like Playstation. So the best
way is to unplug electricity."
"I m happy how I played," Lajovic said.
"I m sure that many of the spectators did
not even know how I look like."
The Czechs are in the final for the third
time in five years. Serbia won its only Davis
Cup title in Belgrade in 2010, beating France.
