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.

Congratulations ? Is that what you need to make it better ??? Please work hard to reduce not only unforced errors but most important of all, build your strength to attack with power and accuracy. The guys on the other end of the court are usually younger than you, and that makes a BIG difference in terms of physical power. Congratulations !!! Keep the good games going !!! Love Ya !!!
