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.

@anoukleyfeldt:

Roger will practice with JM Del Potro on center court Monday 5 PM. If you have day tickets you can watch him.

Tomorrow is another day! Let's go to Rotterdam. I'll follow you wherever you go and cheer you.

As a Roger supporter I even rooted against the US. 5 losses at home on a surface you selected against a depleted US team!!!!! Roger needs a good coach and needs to play a new game. Can't win with the old ways, needs to step up and play like the others.

Tomorrow is another day! Let's go to Rotterdam. I'll follow you wherever you go and cheer you.
Love,
