Swiss team out of Davis Cup

11.02.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger and Stan were defeated by America's Mike Bryan and Mardy Fish 6-4, 3-6, 3-6, 3-6 in today's doubles, giving the US Davis Cup team an unbeatable 3-0 lead over Switzerland.

Roger and Stan started well and they kept the Americans under control for a set and a half. After that, Bryan and Fish became unstoppable as athey gained early breaks in the following sets. After 2:18 hours, the hostile crowd of 7'000 people had to face the third loss of its Swiss team this weekend.

"They were simply better," Roger admitted after the match. "The balls bounced rather high due to the altitude and that caused us quite some problems."

Switzerland will now have to go into the play-offs in September to remain in the World Group.

Count me surprised. I gave the United States little chance of defeating Switzerland in the first round of the 2012 Davis Cup. It wasn't necessarily because we had a terrible team. It was because of one (Swiss) man: Roger Federer.


With third-ranked Federer playing three matches for Switzerland, I figured his country could count on three victories from him and progress into the second round. However, strange things were afoot in Switzerland where this tie was held. The Americans showed a great

After the doubles match, Federer displayed some of the petulant sore loser personality that always seems to pop out when he is particularly disappointed. He placed the blame directly on his teammate Wawrinka's shoulders, saying that he didn't play so well in the doubles match and that the 27th-ranked player' "didn't have his best match" against 9th-ranked Fish the day before. In my opinion, classic Federer. His loss was the biggest of the whole tie. Had he won, the Swiss would still have been in

A good try and of course a very dissapointing result for Switzerland but I think was totally uinfair the Swiss press treated you badly. They do not understand anything about sportsmanship and do not see like we fans do how hard you work and that simply you cannot win them all. Good luck in Rotterdam in my home country, how I wish I could be there right now !!!!!!

Hi Roger, You did your best, and you were great to watch playing in the Swiss team, and you seemed to be enjoying yourself.

How could you throw Stan under the bus; you were just as bad.

It's all right Roger the Swiss fans are super lucky to have you playing for them I'm sure they enjoyed your magnificent presence and surely they appreciate your effort and your good disposition to participate. I woke up very early on Sunday just to see you! And it was great! All the best for the team! Keep fighting!
