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.

I agree with the doctor. It feels a little strange -every night when I turn on TV, I see the familiar faces playing for their coutries at Davis Cup.

No joke... I would really like to know how Roger can explain sitting out Davis Cup and say that he supports his sport?? ALL the other top tens were playing Davis Cup, so his rest was an unfair advantage, one he obviously didn't need, and Davis Cup is so

How can it be said that "you are not supporting your sport" ?!?!
That must be a joke, no?
not a funny one, but, sure, a real one!

I think some comments here are a bit harsh. I understand that Roger wants to have a full rest before his next big tournament. It is true that all other top players in other countries play Davis Cup. The fact that Roger sets up Davis Cup as a separate colu

Hi Roger !
3rd Message and last one on DC 1st round

We all agree that you are a tennis genius, Roger, and an alien on this tennis planet. We Swiss are so proud of you and would never miss an occasion to watch you play, on TV or best in situ. But this

Guess I forgot a very important comment - Switzerland had a hero in chiudinelli who won both his matches but still lost 2-3 as they could not win one more singles match!!!
Its a shame the injury to Wawrinka had to be a big deal when they have a fit World

Just now read Bunnee's comments - I am pretty sure Roger has some kind of a misunderstanding with the Swiss Federation - He played for Switzerland when he was a relatively low ranked player - But now, when he has conquered the world, you say he has to thi
