Federer in majestic form in doubles
Roger Federer and Yves Allegro have given Switzerland
a 2-1 lead in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group Play-off against Serbia & Montenegro, taking the doubles rubber 76(3) 64 64 against Ilija Bozoljac and Nenad Zimonjic.

The first set was evenly balanced with all games going with serve, although Federer, Zimonjic and Bozoljac all had to save break points. In the tiebreak, Zimonjic was the first to drop a point on serve and the Serbian pair could not recover the mini-break.

With Bozoljac’s serve broken in the first game of the second set, the Swiss maintained that advantage with some excellent serving to bring up a two-set lead. Federer, in particular was impressive, conceding just one point in his three service games and finishing with an ace.

Swiss go crazy

In a party atmosphere 5,500 delighted fans cheered every move of their adored national hero. Federer only plays a couple of times a year in Switzerland (and with Wawrinka losing yesterday they are guaranteed to see him again tomorrow). Being Switzerland the impeccably-behaved crowd applauded the Serbs’ winning shots and of course there was guaranteed silence two and a half seconds before every point was played.

The third set went with serve until 4-4 when Zimonjic failed to save two break points. The crowd’s delight grew and the noise was deafening as Roger Federer served out with an ace.

The Swiss go into tomorrow’s reverse singles full of confidence. Federer will be first up against Novak Djokovic.

:woohoo:

No surprise, roger could probably beat a doubles pair on his own :lol: Especially against a player like Bozoljac who is really just a serve.

Federer will rip him a new one in the size of a basketball, I hope Nole is well-prepared for this kind of treatment :devil:
