    Goffin's weapons actually gave him a fighting chance against Fed at RG last year, unlike Ferrer in his meetings against Fed...

    I'd love to see him play as well against Berdych as he did against Djokovic. He can do that, can't he?

    :shock:

    He's getting a rest, right? He's not on the roster for doubles.

    Especially if switzerland win the doubles. If They dont, i think itll be too tall an order for Stan.

    I wonder if Roger would play next tie if Stan manages to win this. Esp. Since next round Will be austria or kazakhstan.

    Excellent performance from John on his comeback! Was serving tremendously well with 32 aces!


    "
    If the 3,400 fans on hand thought that Querrey dominated with his serve, they were in for an even more dominant performance by Isner. The 6-foot-9 right-hander had 32 aces and 29 other serves that Alves was helpless to get back across the net.

    “I always rely on my serve,” Isner said. “I wouldn’t have such a pretty good ranking if it wasn’t for my serve. I wasn’t as sharp in other facets of my game. It was certainly choppy out there at times. I littered up the stat sheet, for sure.”

    SP saved by Wawa abut another SP for the CZechs.

    Yaay, Wawa saves another SP on TB's serve.

    Cheques take the first set in doubles. Go ROSOL !! :)

    Isn't Belgium more known for its chocolate?
    And that's coming from a Belgian.

    For Swiss, I'd like to see Stan carry his team a bit, he really seems motivated to step it up.

    I like Berdman as well but Czech won last year.

    Had the same stream.

    I root for the Swiss too. Partly because I love Stan, partly because I want Roger to compete for Switzerland in the Worldgroup.

    I wonder if Federer's watching ;) It would be 3-0 now with 2 dead rubbers had he played :(

    Rosol is returning pretty bad.

    Chiudinelli is the one who's most on the ropes. By a FAIR margin.

    Yeah, Stan's gonna be mad at Fed if they lose :)

    I also think Fed should have played this one, Berdych is great but Rosol is no Stepanek, this doubles team is definitely beatable (unlike Berdych-Stepanek which is just scary good) and Fed-Stan would have won IMO.

    Even if we presume Fed would have lost to Berdych, he would have definitely beaten Rosol (or whomever they put against him).

    Fed should have played. Particularly because they knew Stan can take care of either Austria or Kazakhstan on his own. What's the point of keeping them in the WG every year in october if you can keep them in in february?

    Well Stan did mess it up against Kazakhstan few years ago (2010 I think?) but yeah overall I agree.

    That said, I don't know in what state is Fed's body, maybe he's beaten up after 5 setters with Jo and Muzza.

    Yeah well I'm going to Rotterdam so I want him to be healthy there, but if it was say San Jose, I'd take a DC tie over that.

    16-16.

    Switzerland's current strategy: Stan serves hard to Rosol, Chiudinelli smashes any ball returning from Lukas.

    Half a chance here! 0-30.

    Fed's playing Rotterdam this year? Awesome, I love watching Fed play indoors.

    How this guy played so well that day is one of the biggest mysteries in tennis.

    It was a fluke if I ever saw one, still you gotta appreciate the absurd level of tennis he showed that day.
