Switzerland beats Serbia 4-1

24.09.2006 | Tennis

The Swiss Davis Cup Team has secured its place in the World Group. Roger made everything clear with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 win over Novak Djokovic of Serbia.

 

After winning Friday's opening singles match against Janko Tipsarevic and then taking a second point in the doubles alongside partner Yves Allegro on Saturday, Roger made it three out of three on Sunday to put the Swiss 3-1 up with one match left to play.

 

Marco Chiudinelli beat Serbia's Janko Tipsarevic 6-4, 6-1 in the remaining reverse singles match.

 

"It was very important for us to keep our place in the world group and it's a fantastic feeling because somehow the Davis Cup always brings out a lot of emotion," Roger said.

 

Djokovic came into Sunday's encounter on the back of an impressive 12 months during which he had climbed 60 ranking places to world No. 21.

 

Switzerland were drawn into this weekend's relegation battle after losing 3-2 to Australia in a first round match which Federer did not play. Since taking Switzerland to the semifinals and quarterfinals of the 2003 and 2004 competitions, Roger has decided to skip the Davis Cup first round to concentrate on his individual career.

 

"I'd love to play all the Davis Cup [matches] because with the quality in this team we definitely have the potential to win it one day," Roger said when asked about his future commitment to the competition.
