Philipp Kohlschreiber sealed a 2-0 win for Germany over Croatia on Wednesday at the Power Horse World Team Cup as he defeated Lovro Zovko 6-2, 7-6(2). The 27th-ranked Kohlschreiber created 14 break point chances and converted twice to prevail in 91 minutes. A day earlier, Florian Mayer had dismissed Ivan Dodig 6-1, 6-1.

"All in all, I never thought that I’d lose," said Kohlschreiber. "I took a few balls a bit too easy and let him get back into the match and didn’t make the break. The result could have been less close, but I let him back into the match and I think he really played well then."

The 28-year-old Kohlschreiber has a 13-9 event record and is bidding to help his nation win the ATP team competition for a record sixth time. Germany completed a 3-0 sweep when Christopher Kas and Philipp Petzschner topped Dodig and Zovko 6-4, 1-6, 10-3.

Argentina also wrapped up a win on Wednesday as Carlos Berlocq beat Japan’s Go Soeda 6-3, 6-4 to follow up Leonardo Mayer’s victory over Tatsuma Ito on Tuesday. Berlocq's teammates, Juan Pablo Brzezicki and Juan Ignacio Chela, finished off the round-robin meeting by rallying past Ito and Bumpei Sato 6-7(3), 6-1, 10-7.

The Czech Republic closed out a 3-0 victory over the United States as Frantisek Cermak and Radek Stepanek defeated Andy Roddick and Ryan Harrison 7-6(5), 5-7, 10-8 in one hour and 42 minutes. Russia salvaged a consolation point against Serbia as Dmitry Tursunov and Igor Kunitsyn defeated Miki Jankovic and Nenad Zimonjic 7-5, 7-6(6).
