Since Roddick joined the group, US Team has never won a single tournament. Even with the help of the Bryans, US still could not win Davis Cup unlike what Croat team last year.

So do you believe he can single handedly bring Swiss team to victory?

Re: Çan Switzerland Win Davis Cup First Time in History with Roger Federer!?

Since Roger said it will become his main goal in a few years I'd say it's possible. If he plays his guts he just needs one more point from Wawrinka/Chiudinelli/Roshardt.......

Re: Çan Switzerland Win Davis Cup First Time in History with Roger Federer!?

Since Switzerland now have a good n°2 player (wawrinka), a relatively ok double player (allegro) and a couple of potential n°3 players (bastl, chuidinelli, bohli and lammer) so we can imagine that they'll be able to win the davis cup one day. It will mostly depend on the surface (if Switzerland choose it or not) and of course if fed plays or not. Also, a couple of juniors are coming who could be potientially very good players (roshardt, sessagesimi,...).

They will have to defeat Serbia first, which won't happen, I hope!

you really see Roger losing a match in front of a DC home crowd when he's able to cope with 23'000+ hostile crowd

Yeah, he can do it if he chooses to play the doubles as well as the two singles.

Well', you know, it's not all about Roger, otherwise, they wouldn't be called Davis Cup Team.

Re: Çan Switzerland Win Davis Cup First Time in History with Roger Federer!?

yes easy DC win provided roger plays all the matches, and plays 3 matches each rubber (singles twice, doubles once), as he is a great doubles player if he bothered playin more

Re: Çan Switzerland Win Davis Cup First Time in History with Roger Federer!?

sure federer can win both singles rubbers but he is not fat or old enough to be a great doubles player so my answer is no

Re: Çan Switzerland Win Davis Cup First Time in History with Roger Federer!?

If they can somehow get Allegro/Wawrinka to concentrate only on doubles and trim them together, they could win. Roger shouldn't play doubles, he has enough to do to defend his position as a god.

And they'd better hope not to face Spain on clay.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

I'm in doubt if federer will play all DC macthes.
I don't know why but I think he will not play all.

Re: Çan Switzerland Win Davis Cup First Time in History with Roger Federer!?

I admit I don't know all that much about Davis Cup, but is one player permitted to play all the singles matches? I thought you had to have 2 different players???

Hell, maybe Roger could just play doubles by himself too. He can be the entire Swiss team.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
