Perfect start for Switzerland

14.09.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his first match in the Davis Cup rubber against Thiemo de Bakker (ATP 159) 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 today. This gives Switzerland a 1-0 lead over the Netherlands in the Davis Cup playoffs.

Under wet and windy conditions, the match was interrupted at 1-1 for about an hour. After that, both players earned a break but Roger was able to win the deciding one to win the first set 6-4. Our champ started into the second set with a double break and held to win the second set, too. Roger did not waste any chances in the third to win the match after 102 minutes of play.

Roger will play tomorrow's doubles match aside Stanislas Wawrinka against Robin Haase (ATP 50) and Jean-Julien Rojer (ATP 17 in doubles).

Hello Roger & Stan
Heartiest congratulations to both of you--thus far we have only watched the highlights until the DVD arrives courtesy of our neighbour!
I feel sorry for you playing in those tough conditons and for the fans such as Joke having to sit through them--but as she says what we will not do to suuport Roger and or one's country.
Wishing you all of the very best for your doubles match

Kindest regards
