Roger to play Davis Cup

16.08.2008 | Tennis

Roger explained in Beijing today that he will not only be helping Switzerland in the World Group Play-offs of the Davis Cup against Belgium (September 19 - 21 in Lausanne, Switzerland) but also in the first round of 2009.

 

He has not quite made all his plans for the coming season but says that "In general next year will certainly be easier. I will certainly join the team for the first round."

 

In order to focus fully on his singles career Roger has had to skip the first round of the season since 2005. Up until 2007 the Swiss then went on to lose and had to play the relegation, where Roger then helped out.

I am glad to hear that your friends did go to Québec city and enjoyed it. This city just seems to get more beautiful every year.

And thank you so much for the info on the Davis cup!
Do you know who Davis is?

Hi dear Takeko,

I have been thinking often about you today. I am so happy for you. I hope the opera is as great as you hoped for.

It reminds me of the time when my mother went to hear her favourite tenor Jose Carreras in Orange (France). She had

May be it's just reference to young Roger sippy cup? But who is the Davis charecter they keep talking about?

***J-S-M - You could have coffee IN the Davis Cup.

jeux-set-match,

I must say that I don't really know what the Davis Cup is. It must be some sort of cup, I assume. Some kind of cup that Roger plays with. A cup of hot Swiss choco? Maybe, Roger drinks a cup before he plays tennis to get energy?
