Djokovic sinks Australia Davis cup hopes!
By preventing Federer from reaching the final Monday, Djokovic has make Australia's Davis cup hopes a blow. Had Federer reached the US Open final on Monday evening (Tuesday Australian time), it would have then presented Federer scheduling problems to be present at the Davis cup.
Federer would have needed to catch a flight departing Tuesday morning for the 20 hour plus journey that crosses the date line and arrives in Australia Thursday. With one day to adjust to a 10hour time zone change if Federer did make the trip it would be difficult for him to be at his peak, particularly on the Friday.
