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.

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

Message No. 1 :

At first, it seemed to me, and probably to many of your fans, that your decision to give Davis Cup Swiss-Spain a miss was justified. Nobody has the right to question any of your decsions or to criticize you for that rea

Hi Roger

Some people think or belive you are not playing Davis Cup this time as you do not want to meet Nadal on these type of games, while you are your own boss, everybody should respect your decision, hope Swiss team to beat Spain.
