Re: Swiss Davis Cup Team

ahh, again in Geneva????

Ferner wurde auch bekannt, dass die Partie wie die letzten drei Daviscup-Begegnungen in der Genfer Palexpo-Halle ausgetragen wird. Sämtliche Alternativen in der Deutschschweiz waren nicht zu realisieren, weil einerseits die Eisstadien belegt sind oder Kapazitätsdefizite eine Buchung verunmöglichten. (si)

Sorry, I can feel you are indeed biased. Good for you, because you are living in that region, but Swiss Tennis actually promised that next time it was going to be held in the German part of Switzerland,, but the problems are not worse audiences, worse place to play tennis,, but simply, the halls are occupied for maybe other sporting events like ice hockeys. And also those possible halls didn't have big enough capacity. But, Palexpo Geneva isn't the biggest hall, St. Jakobshalle in Basel has 9000 or more seats and Zurich's Hallenstadion has even more, I think. It is just a bad timing.

If DC was held in St. Gallen for 3 or 4 times in a row, I would feel really sorry for the fans from your region...

good luck RF!!

Re: Swiss Davis Cup Team

Bern would have been ideal, in between the Röstigraben, and its the capital...

unfortunately the Allmend stadium does not have enough sitting places with its 16,000 capacity, and yes, there is still ice hockey. i can imagine the fans going bunkers if their sport is moved somewhere...

I was kidding Stevens, of course it's a shame that DC happens in the French part for the 4th time in a row...

But on the other hand you already have plenty of other sport highlights such as ice hockey or soccer in the eastern part of Switzerland. In "Welschland" we have to stick to our TV if we want to watch some sports...

OK, I get it now.. But, if you say "in the French part" it is 5 or 6 times in a row.

Talking about the national teams, I am not so sure about ice hockey matches, but soccer matches are most of the time in Basel, Bern, and Geneva, in my opinion. Those are the soccer stadiums with huge capacity Switzerland got, anyway...

Re: Swiss Davis Cup Team

Lüthi has selected Wawrinka, Chiudinelli, Bastl, and Allegro for the coming DC match up against Spain. He says he is too 100% sure that Roger won't change his mind.

Daviscup-Aufgebot ohne Überraschung
Der Schweizer Captain Severin Lüthi wird die erwarteten vier Spieler ins Kader für die Daviscup-Partie gegen Spanien (9.-11. Februar) berufen. Stanislas Wawrinka, Marco Chiudinelli, Yves Allegro und George Bastl spielen in Genf für die Schweiz.

Einen zusätzlichen Spieler will Lüthi nicht aufbieten. «Er käme sich wie ein Ersatzmann vor. Es ist für die Mannschaft besser, wenn wir nur zu viert arbeiten.» Lüthi ist sich auch «zu 100 Prozent» sicher, dass Roger Federer bei seiner Absage bleiben wird.

Chiudinelli im Einzel
Damit scheint auch klar, dass Stanislas Wawrinka und Marco Chiudinelli in den Einzeln antreten werden. Wawrinka wird an der Seite von Spezialist Allegro auch das Doppel bestreiten. So oder so werden die Spanier mit Rafael Nadal die Favoritenrolle innehaben. (tri)

Roger, Chiudi, Stan the Man, Michi, Timea, Swiss guys and girls

good luck RF!!

It is not very fair for bohli who had a much better ending season and start of the year than bastl! Since it is in geneva I hope he will at least be a sparring partner!!!

Re: Swiss Davis Cup Team

It is official, they will be no 5th player, it would apparently be too complicated for the management of the team... how ridiculous!!!

I guess Lopez doesn't want to play Chiudi

But good news that Robredo won't play, Ferrer is a really good player as well tho I see possibilities against this team tho, even while it will be very hard


Bolelli |~| Pospisil
Chiudinelli |~| Federer

Re: Swiss Davis Cup Team

Stephane Bohli replaces Bastl. Apparently George doesn't feel fit enough to be able to contribute for the team...
