On Sunday the Czechs beat Germany to win a third Fed Cup title in four years. Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova won Sunday's opening singles rubber against Angelique Kerber to give the Czechs an unassailable 3-0 lead in Prague.
Kvitova, who defeated Andrea Petkovic 6-2 6-4 in Saturday's opening rubber, saw off Kerber 7- 6 (7-5) 4-6 6-4 in a thrilling three-hour contest.
Germany remain without a Fed Cup title since Steffi Graf led them to victory in 1992. The foundations for victory had been laid on Saturday when Lucie Safarova defeated Angelique Kerber 6-4 6-4 in the second singles match to put the Czechs 2-0 ahead.
