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 unbelievably stupid that they continue to schedule Davis Cup to be in schedule conflict with the rest of the season. I don't understand why they can't work with the tennis associations and allocate a time of year when all the Davis Cup ties would ta

Roger; I do not completely "approve" of your decision, although I believe you have made this decision in concert with your advisors. The Davis Cup it truly an honor for a tennis player; and in spite of what it would cost you, I think you should have part

Roger,

I am sure that they will understand how important it is for you to capture the French Open along with staying dominant in the tour. Hopefully you will not retire after winning all the French Open, Davis Cup and the Olympic gold metal. Go Roge

You are the rare talent tennis has for long long time. As you are not playing the Davis cup some people might think you are a selfish but they are obsolutely wrong. Not everybody gets an opportunity to achieve some greatest things and rewrite the history

This is BS! What man, cant you play for your country in an important tie like that? Are you scared of Nadal? There are things more important than No.1 and you are nearly 4000 points more than your closest rival anyway!!! And hey Federer fans, why do you*
