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 know Roger that you and the Swiss team are very disappointed. We all are, but it is one of those things. I do not think any of us could have predicted that result and how well the USA would get on with that court. Please, put it behind you Roger, learn the lessons from the experience, go to Rotterdam with determination and cheer yourself and your fans up with a big win and a trophy. That is what we all need!! Good luck and good health!

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

Although I'm the greatest fan of you, just want to inform you that you need to improve your STRENGTH and ACCURACY. Time is against you now, you are getting a bit older but you got to work-out to keep yourself fit & powerFULL! Nadal is the best example, he has the POWER & so does the skinny DJOKER!

Hi Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

Don't be disappointed by defeat, it should motivate you even more! Practice makes perfect, so keep practicing but keep in mind the shots that keep coming to you & don't return to the opponent. You got to improve your power and ACCURACY!!! please !

By the way, I am almost happy they have lost. This means that they can fully concentrate on their matches on the Tour and especially the Olympic Games.
I am sure that they alre not too sad about their loss. What is imporant is that they stay in the World Group in order to be ready for DC in 2013. But in my opinion, DC is almost impossible if you only have 2 players like Switzerland. Therefore, let's concentrate on GC's and Olympic Games

Please do not be sad Federer san. I no longer read any unwelcoming media news about negativity concerning you Federer san. For I believe whatever happened is the best for you. Looking at the big picture , this is the best. Your health and peace of mind is the most important. No need to prove anything nor impress anyone. Just do your own best at your own time.
I am so thankful that you are still healthy and playing for all of us to enjoy. So what is there to complain about reall
