Davis Cup

19.09.2008 | Tennis

Stanislas Wawrinka will open the Davis Cup encounter against Belgium in Lausanne (Switzerland) today. He meets Steve Darcis, ranked 58 in the world. The match starts at 1 p.m., Roger then plays Kristof Vliegen straight afterwards.

 

Stan and Roger will team up for the doubles on Saturday. They will face Olivier Rochus/Xavier Malisse if everythings stays as it is - changes in the lineup are still possible. Sunday's first singles match will most likely be Roger against Darcis, Stan will meet Vliegen to round off the event. The players of the two last matches can still be exchanged up until an hour before start of the matches.

***Tilou,

Roger just hit a federesque return up the line, landing, like, 1 inch inside. Amazing! Won the game on the next point, so it's 4-1 Suisse in the 3rd.

*** marycorbin,
Thanks much for the info on the penalty. It looks like umpires are taking the rules more seriously in the Davis Cup.

Fans,

Roger is very relaxed on the changeover after Vliegen had a strong service game. On the other hand, Vliegen and his coach are having a VERY animated conversation (I would characterize as yelling at each other!).

***maricar,

The penalty was assessed against Vliegen for racket abuse when Roger took the set. I thought it was harsh, but maybe the Davis Cup rules are enforced?

***Tilou,

It seemed like the match between Stan and Darcis was a great battle. Several tense games, one which went to Deuce several times on Darcis's serve w/Stan never managing to get the break--causing him to lose steam and lose the 4th set afterwar
