  • Berdych, Hewitt set for World Team Cup showdown

    5/19/10 3:19 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Berdych, Hewitt set for World Team Cup showdown Tomas Berdych and Lleyton Hewitt will face each other at the World Team Cup on Wednesday. The Aussies need a Hewitt victory, as they trail the Czech Republic 1-0 following the first singles match.

    Jan Hajek of the Czech Republic eased past Australia's Peter Luczak 6-1, 6-2 on Wednesday at the World Team Cup in Dusseldorf, Germany and that means Tomas Berdych can clinch the match for the Czechs when he goes up against Lleyton Hewitt on Wednesday.

    Berdych and Hewitt have met on two previous occasions and Berdych leads the head-to-head series 2-0. The Czech prevailed 7-5, 6-3 four years ago on the hard courts of Indian Wells and he most recently outlasted Hewitt 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(4) last spring on the clay courts of Munich.

    Both players are individually 1-0 in singles so far at the World Team Cup. Berdych beat Spain's Nicolas Almagro in three sets and Hewitt rolled over American John Isner. Hewitt needs this win especially bad because not only are the Australians trailing in this match, but they are also 0-1 overall while the Czech Republic is 1-0.

    In other Wednesday action, Andreas Beck of Germany will look to finish off Argentina when he takes on Eduardo Schwank. Philipp Kohlschreiber put the host nation ahead on Tuesday with a win over Horacio Zeballos.

    The USA-Spain match, meanwhile, is coming down to a decisive doubles match after the teams split singles rubbers on Tuesday. Isner and Sam Querrey played in a clinching win over Australia, but brothers Bob and Mike Bryan are expected to be in action this time.
