wasn't born in the right country would be more accurate
So you think Carl Uwe-Steeb was a stronger Davis Cup teammate than Wawarinka?
Becker won twice against against power house Sweden who fielded Wilander, Edberg and Anders Jarryd. Becker’s teammates were Eric Jalen and Carl-Uwe Steeb..
Before that in 1985, Germany reached the final against Sweden and Becker had as his teammates Michael Westphal and Andreas Mauer.
It was extremely hard on Becker and probably detracted from his singles results, and Becker opted out of DC for a couple of years to pursue his goal of becoming the top ranked player. I don’t say that Fed needs to be a DC warrior, but I think if he really wanted to, he could have carried Switzerland to at least a DC final — especially in the years 2003 − 2007.
