PRAGUE (Reuters) - The Czech Republic won their sixth Fed Cup title in eight years on Sunday as world doubles number one Katerina Siniakova outlasted American Sofia Kenin 7-5 5-7 7-5 in front of a boisterous, sold-out home crowd.

In an exciting back-and-forth rubber lasting more than three-and-a-half hours, Siniakova held off the 19-year-old Fed Cup debutante to give the Czechs an unassailable 3-0 lead in the final.
