Tennis: Rios on cruise control to Paris
Sunday 24 May 1998
Nicolas Kiefer bounced back with a brilliant 6-1, 6-4 win over the Spanish baseliner Carlos Moya to steer Germany into the final of the World Team Cup yesterday. The German No 1, who lost his first two matches on the clay of Dusseldorf, picked up his game with perfect timing to present the home team with an unassailable 2-0 lead over the holders, Spain. Germany, who had moved 1-0 up with Tommy Haas crushing the former French Open winner Sergi Bruguera, 6-1, 6-4, will now challenge the Czech Republic in today's final. The Czech squad earned the right to battle it out for the $500,000 (pounds 303,000) top prize by beating last year's runners-up, Australia, on Friday.
