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).

I felt quite cold, wet and windswept just sitting in my lounge watching Roger! Dreadful conditions, must make the court quite slippery. You seemed to managing that side of things better than your opponent. Take care though, that is when injuries happen. A good atmosphere. Lovely play from you and so lovely to see you enjoy yourself judging by the occasional smiles. Well done and thank you for the win. Hope Stan takes care, wishing him much luck. Hopp Suisse!

Well done for Switzerland - conditions were far from easy out there. Hope your back's feeling good, saw you were wearing a compression shirt again. The less glamorous side of being the world no. 1. Great atmosphere though, wish I'd got tickets. Love to you, HOPP SUISSE.
