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."

Maestro (the serbian word is Majstor) good luck in the new year. You have so many fans in Serbia which is little bit strange because we tend to get too supportive of our own stars - one proof more of your greatness... Davis cup 2009 is going to be SO inte

Bottom line , in my opinion Roger has only 2 more shots at the French Open , that's it .

To me he is already the greatest player ever to play the game , but if he wants to complete his career grand slam and to be officially named by tennis experts and
