Roger sits out Davis Cup

07.11.2006 | Tennis

Roger has opted not to represent Switzerland in the opening round of the Davis Cup (February 09 to 11, 2007). He wants to focus on retaining his position as number one in the world rankings, and is thus concentrating on other events.


"Winning the Davis Cup is too big and too important a goal just to try it when it is not the top priority," Roger said. The Swiss federation obviously understands Roger’s decision, but nevertheless regrets it.


Futhermore, it is now official that the encounter will take place in Geneva in the Palexpo hall, just like the last three rounds.

It's tough being the best athlete (and the BEST in the world for that matter) in your country that so much has to be relied on you. It's always a given that your country wins everytime you play in the Davis Cup but I think your countrymen doesn't mind you

"Winning the Davis Cup is too big and too important a goal just to try it when it is not the top priority" - Davis Cup is a team game played under the country's name. Its not you who is going to win it. So please consider it like the goal of your country
