Rough start for Switzerland

10.02.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger lost his first match of the Davis Cup rubber against America's John Isner 6-4, 3-6, 6-7(4), 2-6 today. The USA took a 2-0 lead in their World Group first-round tie as Stanislas Warinka also lost his match against Mardy Fish earlier in the afternoon.

Roger had a great start and only lost four points on his own serve. But Isner started to turn things around in the second set, when he increased the pressure enormously. Roger had little answer to his opponent's excellent serve, and the crowd of 7'000 people in Fribourg was stunned into silence at Roger's first loss in Davis Cup singles in eight years.

Roger and Stan are due to face Mike Bryan and Ryan Harrison in Saturday's doubles. The match starts at 2.30 pm.

Hope you and Stan come out of today's defeat mentally and physically ok Roger. Sadly you were overpowered, you played some great shots at times but for both of you the high bounces to your SHBH's were too much and I am desolated to see this. Again I blame the Swiss for using the Fribourg Stadium and having a clay surface for the Fed Cup/Davis Cup. A low bouncing hard court would have served you better instead of breaking your hearts (and mine) Much love to you both and your families. xxxx
