The Czech Republic will use the same team that beat Italy in the Davis Cup when it faces Serbia in next month's quarterfinal.

The No. 7-ranked Tomas Berdych will lead the team again along with his traditional partner Radek Stepanek, ranked 25th.

Berdych has struggled recently, losing to Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 at the Sony Ericsson Open on Sunday.

Lukas Rosol and doubles specialist Frantisek Cermak were also in the Czech squad announced Tuesday for the April 6-8 series on indoor clay at Prague's O2 Arena.

In their last Davis Cup meeting, Serbia beat the Czechs 3-2 in 2010 and went on to win the country's first Davis Cup title.

The Czechs won their only Davis Cup title as Czechoslovakia in 1980.
