Roger Federer helped Switzerland to stay level in their Quarter-final tie vs Kazakhstan after he defeated Mikhail Kukushkin 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 in just under 2 hours to make it 1-all after the 1st day.

Earlier today, Andrey Golubev upset the World No. 3 Stanislas Wawrinka 7-6(5), 6-2, 3-6, 7-6(5) in three hours & 14 minutes to give Kazakhstan 1-0 lead. This was Golubev's 16th win in his 21st singles match at Davis Cup & he impressed every one with his splendid single handed backhand. Wawrinka wasn't at the top of his game, but, still managed to win the 3rd set & managed to save 4 match points in the 4th set, but Golubev held his nerve to give Kazakhstan its 1 win.

 

 

 

Federer showed no signs of pressure as he won his 34th singles Davis Cup match (in his 41st match) in splendid fashion. The Kazakh got off to a promising start in the 1st set. Federer how ever, got his 1st break on his third opportunity to win the 1st set 6-4.

 

 

Federer looked more comfortable in the 2nd set & again one break of serve was sufficient as he also won the second 6-4.

 

 

Federer had complete control in the 3rd set as he broke Kukushkin's service twice to win the set 6-2.

 

 

On Saturday, Federer & Wawrinka are scheduled to play in the doubles vs Nedovyesov/Korolev. How ever, the captains can decide to change players up to 30 minutes before the scheduled start of the match.

 

 

Switzerland are trying to reach Davis Cup semi-final for the first time in 11 years (last time they reached semi-finals in 2003, where they lost 2-3 vs Australia).

 

 

The winner of this tie will play the winner of Great Britain vs Italy tie being played in Naples, Italy.

Very important win for Roger and his country. I hope Roger wins the doubles match with Stan and then finish the tie with the win in his reverse singles rubber.

Great matches between the Swiss and the Kazakh players, I enjoyed watching every point....Unfortunately the Swiss team loss in the Doubles match, but it was an amazing match..

And Andrey Golubev Woow hats off, he is playing very well..


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

Thanks Kishore :)
