Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek will lead the Czech Republic in the Davis Cup final in Prague later this month.

Team captain Jaroslav Navratil revealed the Czechs are sticking with the side that ousted Argentina in the semi-finals, including 84th-ranked Lukas Rosol and 187th-ranked Ivo Minar.

But the home fans will be primarily pinning hopes on world No 6 Berdych and the 37th-ranked Stepanek as they attempt to dethrone the Spanish holders, who are without the injured Rafa Nadal.

"There was no reason to change the team as they played excellent tennis in Argentina," Navratil said.

"Berdych and Stepanek were clear choices, Rosol is a substitute for singles and Minar has done a great job so he deserves to be on the team."

The final will be played on 16-18 November on a hardcourt in Prague's O2 Arena, where Czech women's team successfully defended their Davis Cup title on Sunday by beating Serbia.
