What a fantastic win for Switzerland! What a great show of mental strength, determination and a will to win! When you lost the doubles and Stan lost against Tomic, I really thought it was doubtful that Switzerland would pull through with both of you jet lagged, injured/fatigued. I thought it was a huge ask of Stan to beat Lleyton, while injured and of course with the full pressure of winning the rubber on him. I did not think he could do it. I am really delighted he proved me wrong! Thankyou!

Well done you two! Great result in difficult conditions. Could only watch bits on youbute while UK tv showed dreary UK vs Hunary and poor France getting hammered.
Have a good rest. have faith in yourself. I do believe there's more to come.

Good stuff, congrat, tough matches not in the least cause of all the travel.
@Williamalphonso: I have never seen Rogers backhand so solid throught the season so I can hardly imagine that he lost his matches there. Don't want to pick it all up again but in most important matches he lost, I noticed a strong detoriation of his serve and as such, his total game. And yes you can't hit aces 4 hours in a row but against Nole it simply happened too soon. just my two cents

@WILLIAMALPHONSO.....
Holding all the GS next yr along with Olympic gold medal and becoming the first player in men's tennis to win a GOLDEN SLAM will be good.....i think he is the only person who deserves this FIRST.....hope he will......

Congratulations to Roger and Stan for beating Australia! Roger , you were tired but you still pulled through, and that is the mark of a true champion. I hope this victory gives you a mental boost for the rest of the year, leave the losses behind and move on to more victories!!! Xxxxx

Thank God you two won. With stress from US open, jet lag and Stan's leg injury. and you battled and won in a partisan stage. That's great effort. Shows just how your hard work and committement can pay off. I believe with this kind of work, next year will still be full of titles for you. Continue inspiring the world with your work.
