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

Mike Bryan - the real Davis Cup GOAT. 20-3 record.

Americans certainly know how to kick Alpine butt. Defeated Austria 3-0 on clay too.

As for Fed "not caring"... lamest excuse ever.
How about the possibility of him just not being good enough anymore? Wawa is a genuine DC-disaster, no surprise at his failure.
He was good enough just a few weeks ago to reach the semis of a grand slam. Going into the AO, he had a much touted winning streak and had won the WTF.

It’s hard for me to buy the argument that Federer is not “good enough anymore.” He’s the number 3 player in the world. So, the person who is better than all but 2 players in the world, isn’t good enough?

Switzerland's Davis Cup campaign 2012:



I wonder whether Fed will ever play in Davis Cup again.

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

Great win for the US. Can't believe they chose to play this on clay. Many thanks to the Swiss! Note for the future, play on YOUR best surface!!

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

why do you think this was wrong decision ? clay was the best surface Swiss could choose against US . They knew Wawrinka has to win one singles match and on clay he was favorite against both Fish and Isner . On hard he wouldn't be favorite against neither of them . Similar situation was when Croatia with Cilic and Karlovic chose clay and when they didn't mistake neither Swiss wouldn't if they weren't playing so bad

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

A team that actually cares about winning Davis Cup beats a team that treats it like it's an outing?

What a shocker.

Come on now, Fed. I respect your game, but honestly, if you really DID want to win, treat the match with more respect and focus. Otherwise, you deserve to get demolished. Same goes for the rest of the Swiss team. You can't rely on Federer to do everything for you just because he said he'd be there.

The better and more-deserved team won.

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

For a guy who on hard court shanks every third backhand this correct bouncing surface was made for his game
