Germany won their second match at the World Team Cup in Dusseldorf after beating Croatia 3-0.

Germany, who are the defending champions here in Dusseldorf, then went on to take the doubles as well, after Christopher Kas and Philipp Petzschner topped Dodig/Zovko 6-4  1-6  10-3.

Czech Republic are also looking strong and they proved it with a 3-0 victory over the United States.

Tomas Berdych didn’t give his opponent Andy Roddick any chance, sailing to a comfortable 6-1  6-2 win. Unfortunately for the US team, James Blake only managed to equal the number of games won by Roddick as he went down 6-2  6-1 to the Czech Radek Stepanek.

The doubles encounter was a lot tighter, when Cermak/Stepanek needed 1 hour and 42 minutes to defeat the American duo Roddick/Harrison, winning 7-6 (5)  5-7  10-8.
