RogiFan,

Rogi was cool today. Younes had the jitters, but Rogi definitely dominated the whole game. Anayoui made some good strong forehands to the corners of the baselines, but Rogi also made some nice overhead backhand smash...sweet! and of course, his forehand was also strong today, and that good ol' backhand down the line, and slicing them for variation, altho some slices went to the net. His first serve percentage wasn't also very high, maybe only 54% to Younes' 77% or something. But overall, a very big win indeed. For Rogi, for PC, and for the Swiss people...btw, he opens the first point of the match on his serve---an ace. how promising can that get?

Basler läckerli are some kind of biscuits, hard to bite on but they soften in your mouth and the flavors come out, and it's a specialty from Basel. Perhaps Doris can explain this better...

well, you're only allowed one bottle of champagne from the duty free, but no worries, you can buy them here too.

Swiss Team breaks through

On the third day of the Davis Cup tie Switzerland - Morocco Roger Federer won the third point for Switzerland. With an outstanding performance his opponent Younes El Aynaoui didn’t even seem to get a chance to breathe during the game. With 6-3, 6-2 and 6-1 he assured Switzerland’s position in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas world group.

“When I played for the match I kept seeing Peter Carter’s face in my mind” said Federer at the subsequent press conference. He dedicated his victory to his team manager and friend, who passed away in an accident on August 1st.

Therefore Switzerland won also the third tie with Morocco. Already in 1982 and in 1992 the Swiss had been triumphant - in those cases winning 5:0 Even on the last of the three days of the meeting there seemed to be a lack of atmosphere and interest in the Complexe Al Amal. The stadium was far from being full, only about half of the places

Hi ILR!

Isn't it great that Switzerland won? Also the Brits!! Yay, Rogi and Timmie!

MRS. B. is having a celebration feast -- I'm trying to make it over to share in the food and drink -- why don't you join us? Bring some goodies!

Rogi looked so happy! It's lovely to see him smile again.

Did you listen to PL's interview on the DC site?
