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,
It is a pity that you lost, your team is strong enough. Czech fans appreciate your team, I am sure.
I want to thank you and your team, especially Stan Wawrinka and Yves Allegro for a great game. It was very exciting, everybody liked your ga

Hi Roger,

Too bad you guys did not win the Davis Cup draw against the Czechs, but better luck next year! It's not that bad really; losing Davis Cup is not like losing Grand Slams :)

Hope you at least had a nice time in Prague!
Good luck in Japan n

A pity the team couldn’t grab their chances…

Poor Stanislas Wawrinka, it’s so hard to “have to” win the last match, it’s harder to beat a “clown” and it’s even much harder to beat an injured one.
Both teams played sensationally! Both deserved the win.

Dear Roger,

I just want to say it was a privilege watching you live in Sazka Arena. All three matches you played were fantastic, the best tennis the Czech fans have ever seen. Thank you so much for coming, hope you stay positive about Prague and the

OK, Roger, don't be upset. You were the best, you are the very good team, so you will return to World Group next year.

The draw was tough. Czechs are also very good, Štepanek and Berdych are also world-class players. But you were still very near to put

Dear Roger GREAT EFFORT from you and the Swiss team. It really was a difficult task and very very close (especially the doubles match could have gone either way-bit of bad luck there). You must feel disappointed with the overall results, but keep up the g

Roger, you did your best all weekend. That is all you can ask of yourself. Hopefully Stan and Yves don't feel too bad either! No worries, you guys will be back!
