Fed Cup final: Czech Republic leads Russia 2-1

Petra Kvitova rallied to beat Svetlana Kuznetsova 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 and give the Czech Republic a 2-1 lead over Russia after the first reverse singles in the Fed Cup final on Sunday.
The two teams split the opening singles on Saturday after Grand Slam winners Kvitova and Kuznetsova won their matches in straight sets against Maria Kirilenko and Lucie Safarova respectively.
Russia has won the Fed Cup title four times since 2004. The Czechs are five-time winners, but their last final appearance was in 1988 when, as Czechoslovakia, they beat the Soviet Union 2-1.
