GENEVA —

Tomas Berdych needed only around three hours to beat Stanislas Wawrinka this time, and lift the Czech Republic to a 3-1 victory over Switzerland in the Davis Cup on Sunday.

Back on court after both played in an epic 7 hours, 1 minute doubles match on Saturday, Czech No. 1 Berdych beat Swiss team leader Wawrinka 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (5) in the first of the reverse singles rubbers.

Sunday's match took three hours, 15 minutes - lasting less than half the time of the longest match in Davis Cup history. The defending champion Czechs earned a home quarterfinal against Kazakhstan in April.

Wawrinka extended his run of hard-luck losses in 2013, which began against Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic when he lost 12-10 in the fifth set after 5 hours, 2 minutes.
