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).

Hi Rog, The look on your face, when you first started to play tennis in Amsterdam, with the rain, wind and somewhat cold!!..... reading your thoughts, "what am I doing here??". But you settled down and accepted the conditions and got on with it, giving everyone great pleasure once again. Looking forward to the next matches sat. and zon. Take care.

Hello Roger,

Nice match under difficult condtions for both the players AND the fans :-)! Cold, windy and wet. The thing we do for our country AND to watch you play :-)...
You were always going to be too strong for our Thiemo, but I was happy to see that he did some good things in that match. Too bad Stan won as well, because I would have liked to see a match between you and Robin Haase on Sunday. For that reason only I will be rooting for the Dutch doubles team tomorrow..:-)
