Re: USA def. Switzerland 3-0....

Roger was not good, but Wawrinka was awful. Stan is not the man for the Daviscup.

Congrats to the US team.

Clown court selection. Should've gone with indoor hard. Automatic 2 points from Fed.

Oh, well.

Re: USA def. Switzerland 3-0....

Well done to the USA. After a shaky first set, Mike stepped up big time. The Americans dominated for the most part winning most of the points. Mike showed why he and his brother are one of the most successful double teams of all time even though Bob didn't play . Now I look forward to Ryan's match .

On a sidenote, Stan is not very good at the net.

Federer was beaten by Isner much more handily than Wawrinka was by Fish. The loss is Federer's fault, too. And the Federer I watched today in doubles was a hot ass mess. You insult me because I like the WTA in addition to the ATP. I pity Fedtards like you who are only able to worship your idol.

Re: USA def. Switzerland 3-0....

they should have played on indoor hard courts and Fed should have played the very first match.

swiss planned poorly and paid the price.

and stan is a choke artist. get rid of him.

Interesting. So this is the way to make a doubles result thread in order to avoid posting in the doubles forum for maximum attention.

Re: USA def. Switzerland 3-0....

It's been said before but Fed's not a team player and he really doesn't care about playing for his country - imagine Nadal or Djokovic playing that doubles match, knowing the tie was on the line, they'd have taken control way more and put up a fight. Fed just doesn't do it - same in the 4th set vs Isner yesterday - he just doesn't view Davis Cup as being that important for some reason...

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 - maybe once he went onto all that success in majors he couldn't pump himself up for this - but it's a shame really. If that's the last time we see Fed play Davis Cup (what are the chances he'll turn up for the play offs...) then what a way to go out - loss to Isner at home on clay & then set up match point for the USA by mishitting his backhand (unlucky bounce for him...).

Re: USA def. Switzerland 3-0....

tactical tank from fed; he wants #1 and everything else is just unnecessary energy dissipation.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Well done to Courier and the team!

They could have bowed to the intimidation factor of playing away and the Greatest Player Of All Time, but they fought hard and excelled.

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?

Yeah, I don't care for any of them individually, except maybe I'll root for Ryan in the dead rubber, but team USA all the way.

Hopefully for the US players they can convert this success in better showings in the bigger events on the tour cause at AO they really sucked.
