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.

I hope you will be with the Swiss in Sept for the play-offs. If so, I hope all the hype dies down and you get to play actual people and not your image - enough already - let the man play the game he loves so much. I keep shouting at the tv (enough so that they may commit me for talking to inanimate objects) shut up with the Greatest of All time (even though true) and let him play his game. I couldn't play under that pressure - well, I can't play at all - I piddle - but still, let him play.

I think you said it best - " it did not go my way." I looked at all the stats. You & Isner were neck to neck - could have gone either way. Showing up to cheer on the dead rubber team mates - now that is class. Your serve and net play in the doubles was wonderful to watch. I do think the person that designed that clay court shouldn't give up his day job. He needs to stay away from clay - what a horror - uneven - I don't know how you hit any balls.

Dear Roger,

Tough weekend! :( You played well, but it was one of those days. Good luck this week in Rotterdam and I'll be cheering for you as always! :)

Your biggest fan,

Roger: I know you are great with numbers but not very fond of making them, anyhow, I think that if you win each tournament that you play until the french open you have really good chances of reaching Paris as number 1 seed, leaving nole and Rafa to square of at semifinals and giving you a good chance of winning a second Roland Garros. Don´t let this weekend startle you, you are still the best by far and beyond, just convince yourself about it and rein again.
