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.

That's true . Fed is the only one who can beat djokovic and he can beat him in all the matches ,but just to keep the focus solid to the end . And also beating djokovic is not the point what Roger want . What is the point from beating him ?? He is not the king of tennis . I can see that all the players are want to finally beat roger after taking the advantage of the lack of his game , but they don't know that this is not the real Federer . It's his brother LoooooL

Huan Martin Del Potro is in Serbia. And when press ask him how to beat Djokovic in DC semis, he say "I must ask Roger how to beat Djokovic". Roger you prove that only you can really beat him. My opinion is that if you stay fully focused, you will beat him in straight sets in US Open. But nevermind. You are the best player ever to play this game. You are tennis Roger. Please play minimum to 35 years! Wish you best, greetings from Serbia!

Look at Roger & how he played in the us open , it was awesome show and then look at him in toronto and cinci . It's obvious that Roger is just playing perfect at majors only although he has the game to win masters 1000 . why Roger ?
