MADRID (AP) -- Spain's prime minister has honored the Davis Cup-winning team in a ceremony at his official residence.

Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero praised the players Monday for successfully defending the title after completing a 5-0 victory over the Czech Republic in the final on Sunday.

Zapatero says the country's overall sporting success has coincided with a period of dominance in tennis, adding the team sets a wonderful example and that no one should underestimate the magnitude and difficulty of its achievements.

Spain has won four Davis Cup finals, 20 consecutive best-of-five series on clay and 18 straight series at home going back to 1999.
