Aussies tried to get off the court earlier due to bad light but officials kept saying it's the same for both teams and asked them to play 2 more games. So here we are, this tie will go into a 4th day. Nervous night's sleep ahead for Stan I guess.

DC Playoff : Wawrinka leads Hewitt 4-6 6-4 6-7(7) 6-4 5-3* (Suspended)

Plenty of drama in this one, play suspended due to darkness. Classic Rafter about the light to the referee "You're making shit up".

I hope there's some justice and that Switzerland takes out Australia tomorrow. Stan put a lot of effort in this, I don't want him robbed.

Terrible stage at which to leave a match, but if there really was no more light left...

Hewitt still with a chance, albeit a very slim one. The resumption may last a mere two minutes if he starts slowly. Gotta feel for him considering how hard the whole team had worked to get that 2-1 lead heading into Sunday. Credit to Stan though. Having read many of the comments (including from Federer), it seemed that not a great deal was expected of Switzerland in that deciding rubber.

He should blame his own organization.. :)

This is about as stupid as it gets, neither match is/was extremely long yet suspended play in the fifth rubber..

I think they just expected Tomic to take out Federer and call it a day.

I predicted this was going to be an epic. Hewitt, at home, in a deciding Davis Cup rubber against a talented player but someone he should beat on this surface. All the ingredients were there.

Stan is so appalling in breakers.

It's all Rafter's fault for interrupting the Tomic-Federer match for so long.
