2-0 against Portugal

08.07.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger had to fight back from one set down in the Davis Cup rubber today to eventually defeat Portugal's Rui Machado 5-7, 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.

It was our champ's first Davic Cup match after almost two years. He struggled with too many errors in the opening set but continually raised his level of play. Thanks to early breaks in the following sets, Roger worked his way into the lead and sealed the victory after a little more than two and a half hours.

Switzerland now leads 2-0 against Portugal after the first day of play as Stanislas Wawrinka won the opening match, obviously thrilling the 8'000 Swiss fans in the Swiss capital.

Hello Roger and the Swiss team

Congratulations on an excellent 1st day play.
Not easy to go from one court surface to another--also you mentioned that the balls were lighter AND an opponent who, I daresay has been watching your game for many hours/days--you may not have seen him play before yesterday. All is well ,you won which is the most inportant thing.
Wishing you all of the very best fot the doubles later today.
Kindest regards
