Re: Davis Cup: Servovic (SRB) d. Rochus (BEL) 6-3 6-2 6-2
"anti-Fedmug" ? that's exactly what Fed did between the US Open and Australia in 2011, with an even bigger jetlag and switching from hardcourts to grass (real grass, with bad bounces and all, against good grasscourters Hewitt and Tomic, and only for a play-off)
The reason Federer and a host of other top players, such as Rafael Nadal, are making sure to play in the Davis Cup before year's end is that participation in the Cup is a prerequisite to playing in the London Olympics next summer.
?There?s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,? he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, ?they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don?t succeed in the end. I?m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.?
