The days that Fed used to easily kick any opponent (bar Nadal) to Kingdom Come are behind him. And a guy who even managed to push Nadal to five sets on a likewise surface surely isn't a 'mug'.
I might get some shtick for saying this but I cannot help but feel that the Swiss team might well have underestimated their opponents for a bit. Not just Fed against Isner, but Wawa against Fish as well, as Fish hadn't been doing well lately at all (his AO performance was )...
It's cost them dearly but well... human behaviour.

But it's Davis Cup - who cares!
I surely don't. Never had anything with DC personally, the only good thing about it is seeing best-of-five matches again.
