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).

Good, tight match between Haase and Stan, very watchable. Congratulations to Stan for winning. Suisse are up 2 matches to zero. They could not wish for a better start.
Lovely to see Roger watching and smiling. Good to see he is taking care of himself as he was well wrapped up in jacket, scarf and woolly hat. Now waiting for the treat of watching Fedrinka tomorrow. Always fun to watch. Hopp Suisse!

Congratulations and thanks from Switzerland!

Loved the creative and humorous banners of the Dutch, kind of "Sorry Roger, today we are behind the Netherlands!"
