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.

It's ok, Roger, next year you'll return to the World Group, and who knows, maybe you'll win the Cup in 2009. By then Wawrinka will have matured into a strong player. This year you all gave your everything and it was just not possible.
Best of lucks for t

Hello Roger,
you don´t have to feel sorry, you did what you could -for me it was very difficult to cheer for our players against you. I am really happy that I saw you live, it´s one of dreams came true. You´re a great player and man, too. P.S.: And kick
