    Germany, Argentina get wins at World Team Cup Philipp Kohlschreiber takes care of Lovro Zovko to clinch a team victory for Germany on Wednesday. Argentina also finds the win column again behind Carlos Berlocq.

    Germany is a perfect 2-0 overall at the World Team Cup in Dusseldorf as the host nation looks to defend its title. Philipp Kohlschreiber's 6-2, 7-6(2) win over Lovro Zovko on Wednesday afternoon finished off Croatia after Florian Mayer downed Ivan Dodig on Tuesday.

    The Germans handled Russia 3-0 in their first-round robin match. They are set to go up against Serbia, with the winner to triumph in the Blue Group and reach the championship.

    Zovko, who continues to fill in for Ivo Karlovic, had been blown out 6-0, 6-0 by Janko Tipsarevic two days earlier but he put up a much better fight against Tipsarevic. The Croat saved 12 of 14 break points, including eight of eight in the second set, before eventually going down in a tiebreaker.

    Argentina also improved to 2-0, putting it atop the Red Group along with the Czech Republic. Carlos Berlocq clinched a win on Wednesday over Japan by defeating Go Soeda 6-3, 6-4. The two competitors combined to convert all seven of their break-point chances, including five by Berlocq.

    Like the the Blue Group, the Red Group all comes down to a pair of teams on Thursday and Friday as the Argentines battle the Czechs.
