The draw of Serbia vs Switzerland was announced just 10 minutes back. Its official that Novak Djokovic won't be a part of Team Serbia for the 1st Round Davis Cup tie. There was a bit of confusion as one of the presentation cardboard had the name of Novak Djokovic.

Does anyone know offhand what points Roger would get for winning his Davis Cup matches?  Enough to pull him up to No. 7 or No. 6?  He's not very far behind these two positions is he. I'm sure I've seen this information on here somewhere but can't find it.

If Roger wins both the matches, he will gain 80 ATP Points only & that too only if the 2nd rubber is a live rubber. Live rubber means a tie where in the tie is still alive....

 

 

Lets suppose, Team SUI wins the both singles matches on Friday & then the doubles on Saturday, then the reverse singles matches of Sunday will be dead rubbers & ATP points from those matches don't count.

 

 

So, maximum of 80 points if Roger Federer wins both matches, though as Berdych & Murray both are playing Davis Cup, so, no chance of RF's ranking to increase after 1st Round Davis Cup :)...

Thanks for the prompt answer Vibhu  :)  

 

Well, at least if he wins both matches the distance in points between him and Berdych won't increase.  Like the points in a tennis match - they're all worth fighting for!

Yeps, the 2nd singles points will get counted only if Team SUI doesn't win the tie on Saturday, else the points of Sunday don't get counted :). Though, to be honest, he isnt playing Davis Cup for points :)...

No, I know he's not playing for the points - it was just me wondering about them :)

Good start by Roger and Switzerland! Roger looked a little shaky when he got broken, but came back well and finished the match well under 2 hours. I think it's good for him to get more match practices. This was a great idea!

He did look a bit shaky, but then so did Stan.  I think they're probably both tired.  It's a long way from Australia to Serbia, via Switzerland.  I'm getting fed up with all the press speculation (again!) about why Roger decided to play.  He said all along what he just said in this press conference, i.e. that he had left a small window open for the Davis Cup.  It's clear that in his position with a family and an additional member on the way he can't plan months ahead, and also can't know months ahead how fit to play he is going to be.  I don't know why people can't just accept that.

 

Anway, well done Roger and Stan!

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a Roger Federer to smile.

What happens now that Switzerland has 3 points? Do they have to play the remaining two rubbers?  Seems a bit futile to me. Wast of energy for both sides.

Both matches have to be played because people paid for the tickets. nevertheless, the matches are decided with a  best of three sets format. And the players can be different from the ones that played on friday.

Now, the next 2 matches or as they are called, reverse singles matches are "Dead rubbers".

 

 

(i) They will be best of three set matches.

 

(ii) These dead rubber matches won't carry ATP Points, so, who so ever wins, won't get any ATP points, though, the win is counted in number of wins...

 

 (iii) If the both captains agree, the dead rubber matches can be called off....

Thanks Chris and Vibhu.  Someone told me earlier that the dead rubbers have to be played but I'm pretty sure I've tuned in before on Sundays to watch and there haven't been any matches.

Well, yes, there have been many ties where the dead rubbers haven't been played after both the captains agreed. But, I think today, Serbia & Switzerland will play the reverse singles matches, obviously, chances of Federer or Wawrinka playing are one in a million :)..

I hope so. I shall tune in anyway.  It's a good opportunity for Roger to play really freely without worrying about the outcome.  It will be interesting to see.

Actually, Federer & Wawrinka won't play today. It was confirmed by Severin Luthi about 2 hours back...
