Roger secures Switzerland's Davis Cup spot

20.09.2009 | Tennis

Roger secured Switzerland's spot in the Davis Cup World Group for 2010 with a 6-3, 6-0, 6-4 victory over Italy's Potito Starace (ATP 91) today.


Conditions were rather difficult and almost even dangerous as the clay was wet from the past days. Roger nevertheless looked comfortable back on clay, coping well with light drizzle in the first set and a long rain delay at 4-0 in the second. After the delay, Roger came out to display some great and entertaining tennis, finishing off the match after 1:43 hours.


With the 3:2 win over Italy Switzerland will play in the World Group of next year's Davis Cup. The draw for the matches will take place in Geneva this coming Wednesday. Switzerland is bound to meet a strong nation in the first round as they are unseeded. They last time they passed the first round was 2003 (semi-finals) and 2004 (quarter-finals). Since then, Roger was never able to participate in the round played in spring.

Hilarious that video of Roger singing! Took me a good laugh:) It was obvious he was very relaxed, maybe antecipating weel deserved rest and holidays!:)
But thank God he's a great tennis player, as I don't think he would make a career as a singer, lol!

_DRAMs, the video you shared on the bottom of p. 12 is great fun! Don't miss it! I loved the RF fans sharing the play by play of the matches of the Swiss DC. It would have been a shame to miss them and Roger's outstanding play. My gratitude to you all
