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 forgot to tell you that in a most wicked way you have also put all the pressure on Nadal now.

Wise decision, Roger. You know best what you can and cannot do to jeopardize your number one status.
