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,

Nice effort. The Davis cup is a team effort and i think you have done your best for the team. Winning all four grandslams, including the French open would be the ultimate. But don't be hard on yourself. I think Rafa is perhaps the greatest

Hi Rog,
I watched the semi-final (or quarter final?) LIVE on the Tennis Channel the other early morning, and Igor Andreev beat Tommy Hass.
I just wanted to say that Igor played one of the best clay court matches I have ever seen, even as good as you a
