U.S. Team to Face Switzerland Team in Davis Cup 2009 First Round

(This entry was originally published in this blog December 2008 and it is based on the information of that time.)

You already know that Spain own the Davis Cup 2008 title defeating Argentina in the final. US Davis Cup team is now hoping to do well next season, but they will have to face strong opponent Switzerland in the first round of Davis Cup 2009. The match will be held at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Arena, starting from 6 March. The three-day match will see world no. 2 Roger Federer leading the Swiss team. Another Swiss professional Stanislas Wawrinka, who along with Roger Federer won the gold medal of doubles in Beijing Olympic, will also be there to help the Swiss team to get past the US team.

Patrick McEnroe, captain of U.S. Davis Cup team, is fully concerned about the possible threat of the Swiss team, boasting of the players like Federer and Wawrinka. He admits that his team would face one of the toughest first-round opponents in March in the tournament. He thinks that the prospect of Wawrinka over the last few years as a professional player must inspire Federer to give his best in their quest to win the title. However, McEnroe is also happy to say that U.S. Davis Cup team has a number of players to feature in the match. Generally, Andy Roddick and James Blake play in the singles, while world famous American brothers Mike and Bob Bryan feature in the doubles. However, McEnroe said that he had options in Sam Querry and Mardy Fish who had been doing well too over the last few years.
