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."

Hey all,
There’s a quick poll running on the ATP tennis website about (who has the best serve on the ATP World Tour), and so far Roger has the highest percentages of votes.
Let’s support Roger everyone, and vote for him.

Thanks and best regards
Suz
