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.

at this time Novak is very strong so Roger lose to him is normal. Roger go to semi at US open that is acceptable result. For Roger, how you can recover your health and not have a full schedule, you should have some main season in year.
Good luck to you, You r still my big fan.

Roger! The only one on this planet I would drop everything in a heart-beat to watch play, win or loose dosn't matter. Of course I always want you to beat your opponent. I find myselfe often at the edge of the chair rooting "common Roger!" Keep in good health and keep concentrated, the rest will fall into place. Most of all enjoy the game, have fun and remember the world loves YOU.

Stan's lost against Tomic. Now, get a grip on the Swiss Knife & slice it out enough to send the Kangaroos hopping out of range! That Hewitt is a hell of a sportsman, very athletic, better than Nadal, keeps his body tuned like a spring board ! If you serve 100%, you'll get him flattened out! Good luck & don't take chances on your backhand. Either you hit them accurately or try something else. Play to win !!!
