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.

Hey Champ, tough loss today, but there still is a chance. That's the sport and anything can happen. Stay healthy. You've achieved what any other player could even dare to dream. So continue playing with the same passion and love for the game. At 30, you're still fixed at No 3 in the world, which solidifies your GOAT status. We want to witness many amazing things that you bring to the game and of course there'll be some tough losses in between. Go Roger, Go Swiss team!

1-Hello my beautiful, wonderful Roger how are you? I'm super happy to see you play, it came as such a pleasant surprise that you're playing the Davis I wasn't expecting it because I didn't remember your schedule quite clearly I was missing you so much already so I'm delighted to see you.

2-And I'm so happy they're broadcasting the matches live on TV so I don't have to go on the net to catch it.

I was watching Stan's match when you suddenly appeared so dashing I was thrilled!!! So excited to see you there. Then of course I enjoyed your match

3-I think you played very well considering you are coming from a long season on hard courts, you of course were feeling a lot of pressure and you're making a huge effort to come all the way from Australia and even more so that you have to go back to Dubai, I think there's nothing to complain about just being grateful for your presence and your effort, sometimes people just don't get it.

4-Don't worry it is a process to adapt to the surface you're on your way, keep going.

All the best for tomorrow's match enjoy your game with Stan all the best for the great Swiss Team!

It is a very exciting atmosphere a very enthusiastic crowd, what is it that they do with their fingers? Casting a good fortune spell perhaps. ;)

And your country is so pretty looks like a fairytale and it is so advanced! And I saw your dad such a nice guy all the best for your parents too.

Hi Roger, I can imagine you have a big shoulder to carry the flag of Switzerland. Relax, relax, play your game as if you are not in your not in Switzeerland. Beat the Americans. You and country men have the chance to beat the Americans. God Bless you.
