    Roddick takes on Berdych at World Team Cup Andy Roddick will be back in action on Tuesday in Dusseldorf as he goes up against Tomas Berdych. James Blake and Radek Stepanek are contesting the other singles match in the USA vs. Czech Republic clash.

    Andy Roddick and Tomas Berdych will be meeting for the 11th time in their careers when they do battle on Tuesday at the World Team Cup in Dusseldorf.

    Roddick leads the head-to-head series 6-4, although Berdych prevailed earlier this year 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 at the Indian Wells Masters. They have faced each other only once on clay, with Roddick winning a 2007 Davis Cup encounter 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 7-6(4).

    Berdych, of course, is a huge favorite this time around. The seventh-ranked Czech, who beat Go Soeda in three sets on Monday, is 29-8 for the season and he recently finished runner-up in Madrid. Roddick is a mere 7-7 for his 2012 campaign after getting blown out by Carlos Berlocq 6-2, 6-2 on Sunday.

    James Blake and Radek Stepanek are scheduled to contest the second match between the Americans and Czechs. Blake has won four of their six encounters, but Stepanek took their only clay-court clash 6-2, 1-6, 6-3 at the 2003 Rome Masters.

    Stepanek lost to Tatsuma Ito in three sets on Sunday only to clinch a Czech win with the doubles point one day later. Blake only played doubles against Argentina and lost with Ryan Harrison to Berlocq and Juan Ignacio Chela.
