Australia - Switzerland

15.09.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 2

The Davis Cup rubber between Australia and Switzerland starts tomorrow. Roger will play three matches, starting with a singles against Lleyton Hewitt, followed by a doubles pairing with Stanislas Wawrinka. Wimbledon quarterfinalist Bernard Tomic will face Wawrinka in the opening singles match, while Hewitt will join Chris Guccione in doubles. Roger will play Tomic for the first time in Sunday's reverse singles, while Hewitt meets Wawrinka.

The winner will advance to the Davis Cup World Group for 2012, while the loser will have to take part in zonal qualifiers next year. The Swiss Davis Cup team has never played a round on grass before. They lost to Australia every one of the four times they have met, but this time they are expected to win.

Roger had just two days preparation on the grass courts at Royal Sydney Golf Club. "I'm feeling good, really good actually," Roger said nonetheless.

Go Switzerland I wish they were televisiing the match in the USA but cannot find it anywhere but did see the pics of you and you look so much more relaxed than at the U S open semi Just know you are the greatest tennis player and some losses are going to happen. Love watching you play

Hi Rog, it was worth losing some more sleep to see you beat Lleyton this morning. In the circumstances I think you played well but the court didn't look particularly quick and the commentator remarked on how it was holding the ball. Hoping you and Stan(?) get the doubles win tomorrow.Thought you got a great reception (at least the equal of Lleyton) when you walked on court. All love, xxxx
