Robin Haase will hold great memories of his duels against the Czech Republic. In his debut in Davis Cup in 2006 he achieved his first triumph over a Top 100 player and 13 years later led his team - which also had the contribution of one of the best doubles player on tour, Jean-Julien Rojer (number 18 in the world) - to the Davis Cup Madrid Finals in November.
