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.

Dear Champ!
Perhaps you never have time to read the huge amount of mails that we write. But let me share my feelings with you and fans. Watching the US Open semi, once again I could realized that ND is simply rude and unpleasant, also unprofessional. It is always unacceptable his behavior especially when losing! He knew well you’d got the match, and his “all or nothing” shot encouraged by his team changed the result. Tennis is ungrateful sometimes, you deserve the match, the trophy,
