    Finally! 20-20! If it was Marco serving instead they would have lost already.

    Breakthrough for Switzerland now anyone?

    This is amazing because it is basically a one man show on the swiss side. I really hope Stan somehow pulls this off, two hard losses in a row is never good. They need to make some inroads on the czech serves though. It's just not happening as of now.

    guys...sorry this is team effort, you can't win doubles on your own...

    stan & berdy are leading but it only takes 1 swing at the right time.

    this loss is going to hurt...whichever way it goes.

    There's something about Rosol's face that's really annoying..I don't know what it is but I want him hit in the dome by a smash a time or twenty.

    Chiudinelli is just breaking down. He must be insanely tired.

    Fitting end considering how much Chiudinelli just broke down there at the end. At least Stan can walk away knowing it wasn't his fault.

    I saw the score at 22-23, and tune in to the live feed just in time to see Chudinelli DF on match point. What timing.

    Congrats to the Czech! Great victory for them, Berdych's dedication to DC is admirable to say the least.

    Stan was awesome but he couldn't win this by himself (Marcos dropped the ball in crucial moments), hope he doesn't get too down on himself given that this is the 2nd marathon he lost in a short time.

    Stan saved 11 MPs on his own serve. Massive respect from him from the past 2 weeks.

    You've clearly not seen the whole match. He's carried the Swiss for much of this match.

    How is it that Rosol is always involved in such epics?

    Exactly. Most of the guys here are forgetting that the Swiss lost sets 1 and 3 because Wawrinka couldn't hold serve.

    I've seen and it was vice versa, Stan saved 11 mp on his serve (while Marcos was creating those mp's with too many missed volleys and stuff)

    Yes, longest ever doubles match. you can always count on the Davis cup for records to be broken.

    1. Look up his name
    2. If Wawrinka was playing as well as Chiudinelli for the first 4 sets, this would've never been a five-setter.
    3. Just for the record: I like Stan a lot, but he was the weak link for much of this match. His clutch play on match points doesn't change that.
