Sept. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The defending champion Czech Republic beat Argentina in doubles to reach the final of tennis’s Davis Cup.

Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Carlos Berlocq and Horacio Zeballos 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 to give the Czechs an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the best-of-five semifinal in Prague. They’ll meet Serbia or Canada in November for the title.

Canada leads Serbia 2-1 in the other semeifinal in Belgrade after Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil beat Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-7 (6-8), 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-5), 10-8 in a 4 1/2-hour match. The Canadians need to win one of tomorrow’s two reverse singles matches to advance to the final of the top team event in men’s tennis for the first time.
