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.

G'Day Roger-so fun to watch you play Lleyton and congratulations on the win. Despite watching on my small computer screen it was lovely to see you playing on grass again and as the article says you after you adjusted to the different court conditions you asserted your game beautifully. I hope to catch some of your next match; your opponent has a very interesting playing style. Best of play to you and onwards team Switzerland!
PS I look forward to watching you play doubles as well!

The interviewer Hamish asked him who he would like to have at a home dinner.

Hello Roger
I cannot say how wonderful it was to sit courtside and watch you and Lleyton play again- both professional champions [and fathers] who have alot of of respect for each other. No messing around between points/serves/games. Both served very well. Congratulations to both of you for giving us some great tennis thank you. Well done on your win,Roger
There appeared to be many strange bounces, must have been difficult for both of you to adjust to the converted golf course .

Dear Roger
It was so worth staying up until 3:30AM my time, to see your beautiful grasscourt game and fighting spirit. I'm so proud of you as I'm sure all your teammates are.
Best of luck in the rest of your matches!

Your biggest fan,
