Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek gave the nation an unassailable 3-0 lead against Argentina after a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Carlos Berlocq and Horacio Zeballos on Saturday.

"We played a great game," said Berdych. "Everything was in the right place today. We didn't drop a serve. We were taking our chances."

Stepanek said, "It feels great; this competition means a lot to us. We would like to keep that trophy because it's beautiful."

By improving to 13-1 in Davis Cup doubles rubbers together, Berdych and Stepanek ensured that Czech Republic extended its winning streak to eight ties.
