Switzerland eliminate Great Britain

25.09.2005 | Tennis

Switzerland retained their place in the Davis Cup's elite 16-nation World Group on Saturday after winning their play-off against Britain. Roger combined with regular partner Yves Allegro in Saturday's doubles rubber to see off Greg Rusedski and Andy Murray 7-5 2-6 7-6 6-2. The result left Britain trailing Switzerland 3-0 with just two reverse singles rubbers left to play on Sunday. And those merely only had statistical character: George Bastl only left David Sherwood with three games (6:3, 6:0), Wawrinka secured the flawless 5:0 Swiss victory with a 7:5, 7:6 (7:5) against Mackin.

 

"This is magnificent -- it's been a very special weekend," said Roger. "It's been a long time since I played in Switzerland and it gives me a lot of pleasure to play in front of my home fans."

Congratulations Roger,I know that is very important for you.
Uruguay lose with Brazil, however I think that our players (Felder,Cuevas and Vilarrubi)showed us their best tennis, they had to play vs Guga, Mello , Saretta and Sá.
You know that in my count

Congratulations on a great weekend, Roger!
As usual it's been a great pleasure watching you, although RATS to the BBC for cutting off coverage of Saturday's doubles halfway through so that it could show a stupid SNP conference instead.
Never mind. Well
