Roger levels vs. Australia

16.09.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated Lleyton Hewitt 5-7, 7-6(5), 6-2, 6-3 in his first match in the Davis Cup encounter today, pulling Switzerland even with Australia at 1-1.

It took Roger a set and a half to get used to the conditions on the grass court at Royal Sydney Golf Club. He then continually raised his level of play, winning the important points from there on. Roger thus secured the important first point for Switzerland after Stanislas Wawrinka had lost to Bernard Tomic.

Roger and Stan will play Chris Guccione and Lleyton Hewitt in tomorrow's doubles.

sorry about the doubles but i'm sure leyton would swap that win 100x over for your career. davis cup is strange with too many factors deciding. when usa had sampras, agassi, courier, etc it was easy wins. fed and murray have a lot less. fed is doing great. 10 yrs apart, the only person i can compare him to, pete, 2001 ranked #10. 2011 fed #3. pete career 762-222. fed so far 791-186. pete had no titles for 2 yrs. in 2002, ranked #17, won USO and retired age 31. fed has a GS or 2 left i think.

Federer is to tennis what Lara has been to cricket.......a class act.

LUCAYA ...you are badly mistaken, Federer 2004-2007 would beat Djokovic more often than now, so, Federer 2003-2007 is better than Federer 2011, and that is more because of his mental.

So Australia won the doubles.

@ sizzlers I honestly think that RF today would beat RF in 2004-7. Watched some old footage and I really believe that. He's not dominant but that has to do with the general bar of tennis being raised.

Having said that no one plays tennis like Roger, not Nadal not Djoko. And given that a prayer of a forehand and some questionable behaviour from Djoko denied RF the final when Nadal didn't even come close, just tells me a lot re RF form at the moment. 30 or not 30.
