DUESSELDORF, Germany -- Serbia overcame the Czech Republic in the final of the World Team Cup on Saturday to clinch the title for the second time.
The No. 8-ranked Tipsarevic was first off the mark when he snapped a three-match losing streak against the No. 7-ranked Tomas Berdych with a 7-5, 7-6 (8) victory.
Then Troicki recovered from a terrible opening set to beat Radek Stepanek 2-6, 6-4, 6-3.
The doubles match to be played later Saturday will have no bearing on the final result, leaving Serbia to celebrate its first title since 2009.
