World number seven Tomas Berdych and 31st-ranked Radek Stepanek will spearhead the Czech Republic in their Davis Cup World Group first round tie against Italy from February 10-12 at home in Ostrava.

Captain Jaroslav Navratil also named 81st-ranked Lukas Rosol and doubles specialist Frantisek Cermak in his team unveiled on Tuesday.

"If everything goes according to plan, Tomas and Radek will play all the matches," said Navratil.

Stepanek won the Australian Open doubles title last week with Indian Leander Paes, while Berdych reached the singles quarter-finals of the same tournament.
