In the 2nd singles match, Radek Stepanek was destroying David Ferrer before the Spaniard found his A game to win the match 1-6, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, 8-6, and give his country a comfortable lead. “It was maybe the most important (win) of my career; it’s the final of the Davis Cup,” said Ferrer, who will play Berdych if necessary following Saturday's doubles encounter. “(But) it all depends on if we win.”
