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.

i don't know if anyone has posted this already, but i went to yahoo tennis photos roger federer gallery and saw this article-ROGER FEDERER'S GENERATION IS BETTER THAN CURRENT TENNIS PLAYERS: AN ANALYSIS. it was kind of interesting. i agreed with it because it seperated them 26 and above and 25 and below. i always thought putting roger and nadal in the same generation was kind of wrong. it made other good points as well. just thought federer fans might find it interesting.
