Re: Federer is Playing Doubles?!

He needs all the match practice he can get, the more he plays the faster he will get his rythm back, allez Fed/Allegro

Re: Federer is Playing Doubles?!

I don't like it if he isn't injured or not 100% healthy.
If he is healthy and just needs more matches good for him

Another Game for Milos

Re: Federer is Playing Doubles?!

He played for 2 hours + against Kiefer and now his doubles match is 2+ hours. That's a lot of tennis, no matter how much rest he is coming off of.

As long as he got match practice, who cares. I don't think he needs it though to defeat Ollie.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Yep he just needed the practice, but they need to improve for DC

Re: Federer is Playing Doubles?!

They needed more matches to play together considering Davis Cup. I don't know if Stan Wawrinka can win one of 2 singles (Rusedski and Murray?), while I assume Roger will win the other two singles. Then Roger/Yves doubles match could be very important.

Roger, Chiudi, Stan the Man, Michi, Timea, Swiss guys and girls

good luck RF!!

Re: Federer is Playing Doubles?!

If only they had converted one of those 4 match points at 6-5... anyways I hope Fed got some rhythm and that he'll play better tomorrow than today! GO FED!!!

Don't care about Swiss DC matches really but I can understand how Swiss fans feel about it.

Re: Federer is Playing Doubles?!

How do Rusedski & Murray play on clay though? Stan plays pretty well on clay, doesn't he?

If I were a Swiss fan I would be pissed at Federer for skipping the 1r tie and sending the SUI team back to the world group playoffs. The team needed him in their opening round match so that if they win then it doesn't matter what happens later because next year they're still entered into the main draw. I foresee that if somehow GBR upsets SUI Federer won't bother with DC anymore since the team will fall even further and have to win more than one tie to qualify.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas
