Big hole in his CV and it'll now stay there for ever - Borg, Laver, McEnroe, Rafa etc. all came up big for their country in this format - Fed sadly hasn't been that bothered after that loss to Hewitt in 2003
It's not really a BIG hole in his CV as a singles player, no matter what you say. When discussing GOATS, commies and pundits hardly ever bring up the Davis Cup. You can have a Davis Cup while never winning a single match, it's a team sport. If this is such a BIG hole in Federer's resume, what do we say about Nadal never winning the WTF?
