Birmingham will host Davis Cup

19.12.2008 | Tennis

The city of Birmingham, Alabama, will host the 2009 first-round Davis Cup matches between the United States and Roger-led Switzerland on March 6-8.


The Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Arena is expected to seat more than 17,000 for the best-of-five series. It's the first time a Davis Cup match will be played in Alabama. Roger will play in the first round for the first time since 2004.


"It's certainly one of the tougher first-round matches we could have gotten," said McEnroe, captain of the U.S. Davis Cup-team.  Roger and Stan won the gold medal in doubles at the Olympics, beating American brothers Mike and Bob Bryan along the way. "That's pretty much their team," McEnroe said. "Assuming that they're both healthy, they're quite a formidable duo in singles and doubles."

I was happy to see that you reported that the Davis Cup is going to held in Birmingham, Alabama between the United States and Switzerland.
It's going to hard for me because I'm loyal to the USA team but I'd like to see Roger and the Swiss team win too.

Goosd to hear, but please ensure that nothin compromises your own schedule and goals. Davis Cup is nice, but not Olympics! Look out for yourself, even though I know you are proud of Switzerland. And they are so proud of you, so you have nothin to prove to

I forced my parents to get tickets to it, just to see you. We have to fly from Califorina to Alabama, but you are always worth it.
