Roger beats Haase to secure |Swiss Davis Cup win

16.09.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger beat Robin Haase 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 today to clinch Switzerland's victory against the Netherlands in their Davis Cup World Group playoff.

"I felt like I was always somewhat in control," Roger said after the match. Our champ was rarely troubled by the 50th-ranked Haase on the temporary clay court in Amsterdam. After only a few minutes, Roger already had jumped to a 3-0 lead. In the next two sets, he broke very early and sealed the victory and his team's return to the World Group next year after only 97 minutes.

I saw Marco's name and thought of Brad Gilbert and his fixation on the friend who "owns your mind."

Great work Roger and Stan. Hope you get the much needed rest and time with family you need before gearing up for the season's end. It has been a grind with Olympics and Davis thrown in among Wimbledon and US hardcourt. Hope your indoor hardcourt season is fun and not too gruelling. Wonder if Rafa will return this year. I miss that competition. I hope you retain No. 1 into the Finals.

Congratulations, Roger & the Swiss Team! Well done by you and Stan this past weekend. Lovely to watch you play, as always. You participation always makes such a positive difference, especially for small Switzerland. Glad you had a good time with friends. Hopefully, the DC draw for 2013 will look good for the Swiss team & offer a chance to progress further in the World Group.

For now, enjoy some time off to rest, recover & recharge your body & your mind. Have fun playing with your girls!
