Switzerland drops out of World Group

23.09.2007 | Tennis

Switzerland has dropped out of the World Group after having been defeated by the Czech Republic this weekend.

 

Roger had managed to even the score, 2-2, in the first match on Sunday, beating number ten ranked Tomas Berdych 7-6, 7-6, 6-3. But in the following match, Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka had to face a 6-7, 3-6, 6-7 defeat in the decisive fifth rubber, giving the Czechs the victory in Prague and a place in the 2008 World Group.

 

Switzerland will start the next Davis Cup season in Europe/Africa Zone Group I, a place they have not been in since 1994. They will play countries such as Croatia, Slovakia, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Latvia, Georgia and Macedonia or Luxembourg as well possibly Belarus and Israel.

Dear Roger,
Don't worry about it! The team will be back in the World Group before you know it.
Just focus on your Master's Cup matches!

Dear Roger the great,

Sorry to know that you lost the Davis Cup tie. But at the same time I am so proud of you, you did all you could. You almost won it for your country single-handedly, that is your greatness. But Davis Cup is a team sport, you nee

There is nothing to worry about Roger.

As we´ve seen from you over these years, you gave your all on the court.

I´ll be rooting for you guys next year.

Have a safe one.

Oh well, you win some you lose some.
I wish I could have seen the doubles battle - it must have been a great game, even though you guys lost.

Another fan from Montréal.
