SEVILLE, Spain (AP) — Carla Suarez Navarro rallied for a 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 win over Klara Zakopalova to give Spain a 2-1 lead over the Czech Republic as their postponed Fed Cup series picked up on Monday.
Suarez overcame a poor start to beat a tiring opponent as Zakopalova was forced to come out earlier Monday to finish her singles rubber against Maria Torro-Flor. Zakopalova won that one 6-3, 2-6, 6-1 to close out a match that had been postponed in the second set on Sunday.
Rain wreaked havoc with the series all weekend but gave way to sun on Monday, though gusty wind played a factor on the clay court.
Silvia Soler-Espinosa can clinch a Spanish victory in the best-of-five series with a singles win over Lucie Safarova in the fourth singles match.
