Poll: Who Should Switzerland Play In The Doubles Saturday? Federer-Wawrinka?

After a quick opening day of singles, Switzerland and France are locked at 1-1 in the Davis Cup final on the red clay in Lille.

With France pretty set with Julien Benneteau and Richard Gasquet, it’s decision time for the Swiss and coach Severin Luthi in the doubles. The Swiss has designated Chiudenelli/Lammer for the rubber, but will Luthi stay with it knowing that Roger Federer, who didn’t look great today in a loss to Gael Monfils, would be then asked to save the tie against JW Tsonga on Sunday with no rest for his back?

To me, based on what I saw today with Federer’s hobbled back/movement, is Roger will have a better chance of winning a point in the doubles with Stan than against Tsonga in singles. So it’s a tradeoff, and who knows maybe if they win the doubles Federer wakes up Sunday feeling great and he can beat Tsonga.

Otherwise, without Federer/Wawrinka playing tomorrow, I don’t think the Swiss will win the doubles and they’ll go into Sunday with an ailing Federer down 2-1. And that’s a longshot from there.

Of course if Federer plays the doubles, further taxing his back, and the Swiss lose the match then the tie is all but over.

So let’s see what they (Federer) do. I don’t expect a decision until a few hours before the match. But if I was the coach, given how quickly the matches went today and if Federer was OK, then I would play Federer-Wawrinka to try to get that point and maybe sacrifice the Tsonga match if Roger’s in bad shape (play Lammer?).

Decisions, decisions.


Chiudenelli/Lammer
Pros: Keeps Federer/Wawrinka fresh for Sunday
Cons: Almost certain defeat

Chiudenelli/Wawrinka
Pros: Better chance at winning
Cons: Wawrinka fatigue on Sunday if match goes long

Federer/Wawrinka
Pros: Best chance of winning assuming Federer somewhat healthy; Federer/Stan gets more clay practice
Cons: The gold medal winning team has lost their last 4 doubles matches in DC; if match goes long Federer risks further back issues Sunday; fatigue for Stan; all or nothing match

brando GOAT poster Says:

I think Federer will be asked for this and he’ll likely say: I want to play against Tsonga and I believe I can win IF I rest. He’ll be confident that he can beat jo with rest, but obviously not if he plays another day. So that makes it a choice for Fed: doubles or singles? He ain’t playing both so he’ll take the rest- which is what he needs- and play on Sunday. Stan will definitely play though.


Emily Says:

Why is Federer “saving the tie” against Tsonga? Stan is going to have to save this tie for the Swiss


RZ Says:

@Emily – Fed plays the first match on Sunday. He (presumably) would have to win the match to save Switzerland from losing. But then Stan would have to win to save the overall tie.


jane Says:

most of the pressure is on stan now.


RZ Says:

I was going to vote for Federer/Lammer but it isn’t an option. (Kidding!)


Emily Says:

@RZ, thanks for the clarification


Thangs Says:

he will hurt his back more in doubles which involves quick extension of arm to reach out the ball n also hitting volleys


TennisVagabond.com Says:

Yeah, I think logically Fed should play: doubles will be much less running than singles, and the tie is worth as much. But how can I fathom how the mind of such a genius works?


Giles Says:

So, nobody rooting for France? Why may I ask?
Allez France!
Vamos France!
Vamos Gael!


Thangs Says:

I am rooting for France ofcourse! Allez!


Emily Says:

I give definite credit to Gael for that match. Whether Roger was feeling the back or not, Monfils had a clear game plan and executed it. He was serving great and those were some of the best BHs I’ve seen from him


RZ Says:

@Giles – I would be rooting for France if they weren’t playing the Swiss, mostly because I see this as Switzerland’s only chance at winning the Davis Cup. France has a deep team and should be capable of winning the Cup within the next few years.


RZ Says:

I’m beginning to think Fed should play dubs to get more practice on clay. But I’m still torn as the risk is that the doubles match would be a long one as it’s best of 5 full sets which wouldn’t give him much recovery between tomorrow and the first match on Sunday. Glad I’m not in Luthi’s place. He has some tough decisions to make.


Bob Lewis Says:

Winning the doubles is ‘a must’ for the Swiss. Not quite as imperative for the French. This will be the deciding factor.


skeezer Says:

I would cheer for France if they were playing Spain.
But alas, its the Swiss!!


jane Says:

Marianne Bevis ‏@MarianneBevis 4m4 minutes ago
Wawrinka:”With everything that happen this week with Roger’s back,there is more pressure on me because we can see it’s tough for him so far”


Humble Rafa Says:

Believe in the Best Backhand in Switzerland. It’s one choker against five.


Humble Rafa Says:

It’s pathetic to perform this poorly when playing for your country. The Arrogant One ought to be ashamed of his performance. I am sure Chuddy boy or Dumber would have been better.

Using an injury as an excuse for a loss, especially, DC is low.


rogerafa Says:

You have to feel sorry for Stan. He played a great match to beat Joe who played quite well for most of the match. Stan was just too good on the day. That great start now means nothing because it seems France will likely wrap it up inside four matches. Stan may not even be needed for that dead fifth match. I can not see this Roger beating Joe on Sunday even if the back feels a bit better. Gael was terrific as he played as well as I have ever seen him play. Roger put in an anemic performance though. His movement and some aspects of his game seemed obviously compromised. The Swiss must try to win the doubles somehow and hope that Stan can beat Gael on Sunday. That is why Roger must play (unless he is in really bad shape)the doubles with Stan as that seems their only hope, albeit very slim, of keeping the fifth match relevant. France are the big favorites now to win the final because their doubles team are heavily favored to win.


Polo Says:

It’s over for Switzerland. Who would have thought? What a weird turn of events.


Wog Boy Says:

There is few of us here cheering France. I personaly don’t have any favourite player but Simon (who is not playing!!??) i this final but I see DC as a team sport and in that case I will go for France day and night in all but few final.
Now let us be honest Fed fans, you don’t care less about a Swiss, you cheer Roger and you want him to get DC in his record books.

I don’t understand how anyone who watched Stan/Tsonga match can say that Tsonga played good for most of the match. The only set he played good was second one that he won, he was old aggressive Tsonga, the rest of the match he played stupid tennis without any play, wrong choice of shots and letting Stan dictate the game, I remember player like Tsonga didn’t have one single winner in the first set!! Tsonga was mental midget, he cracked under expectation.

Go the blues, all the way:))


Wog Boy Says:

^^Few spelling mistakes, but you are getting what I wanted to say.


Wog Boy Says:

For those one who are wondering where was Roger during Stan’s match? He was with the boys on the bench in the first set and probably when he saw how Stan is dismantling Tsonga left to get ready for his match, what everybody does, just normal procedure.


van orten Says:

I believe in the suisse Team..they still can Beat France ..Why not


Michael Says:

It is but all over for Switzerland unless there is a miraculous recovery which I do not see happening at the moment.


Brando GOAT poster Says:

Lmao: how easily do some chuck in the towel? Lol, last I checked the score was 1-1, tomorrow fed/ Wawa- a Olympic gold winning team- will take on a pair of known chokers: gasquet and benneteau. And it won’t take some miracle to beat that pair either. Lets get a grip and not overblow reality to realms that it does not even come close to. The Swiss are more than in it, and they don’t need a miracle to win either: just some good old fashioned bit of excellent tennis and a healthy body (fed). That’s it. No miracle is needed, just that.


skeezer Says:

“Using an injury as an excuse for a loss is low.”
You should know, no?


SG1 Says:

I think you have to play your best players every chance you get and let the chips fall where they may. If playing Fed-Wawa tomorrow is an option, go for it. Fed won’t have to cover the entire court and he’s one of the better volleyers in the world. One way or another, you have to win 3 matches to get this done. Why not do everything you can to get up 2 to 1 and then give yourself two chances to close the deal?

Besides, they are playing a couple of mental midgets. Even with a physically compromised Federer, I like their chances against a couple of perpetual underachievers.


SG1 Says:

The only question(…assuming Fed can play) is, which doubles team gives you the best chance to win to win. That’s the team Luthi has to go with.


jane Says:

“mental midgets” and “perpetual underachievers” – ouch! but true, sadly. gasquet never reached anywhere he should have and hasn’t benneteau lost like every big match and final he’s been in? obviously the swiss are the favourites.


Polo Says:

I’m ready to face the inevitable. Federer is no longer the Federer of old. Just plain old and vulnerable. Cruel world!


skeezer Says:

@SG1
Agree, play the Doubs.


van orten Says:

“I expect more from myself now” fed


Okiegal Says:

Fed fans…..don’t give up on Fed until Fed gives up on himself. The guy has had one incredible year. He clawed his way back to #2 in the world…..WOWZER!
He has enough time to get his back in shape…..then look out, the Aussie Open is in his sights! Congratulations to Fed and his fans for the wonderful year he’s had!!


Emily Says:

@rogerafa, agree with the match analysis. Stan even said that if Switzerland don’t win the tie, him playing well won’t even matter. Roger could have had a strategy coming into the match that would have demanded less on his movement. He couldn’t stop Gael from serving so well, but I didn’t see the same desire that came from Stan. I’m sure Roger was in a tough position physically, but hopefully he can pull it together, whether it’s in doubles or singles.
This will certainly be a DC final to remember, and miracles do happen


Michael Says:

Brando,

I think the Swiss are in a catch 22 situation. If they risk and opt to play the pair of Roger and Wawarinka, that would become a double edged sword because a negative result over there would reflect adversely on the remaining singles matches especially when Roger is already struggling with physical problems and is yet to fully recover. In this scenario, over taxing his already worn out body would not be prudent and help the Swiss cause. That is the reason I contemplated that a 2-0 result in the initial stages would have been a great boost for Switzerland going forward when they would be under less pressure to go all out and have the lee way to take some risk in the remaining matches. But now that option is ruled out and Swiss are under tremendous pressure in the remaining matches. The word miracle was exactly used in this context and may be it would appear to be an exaggerated word not used in the right sense. But, I just used it in the context of advantage France with Swiss down in the dumps atleast in the initial stages of the finals. Ofcourse there is always a possibility of the Swiss turning it around and if that happens, I would be very happy for I want Roger to finish the unaccomplished task by taking his Country to the path of glory.


Michael Says:

Okiegal,

Appreciate your post @ 10.25 pm. Can you give up on Roger, the Legend, who makes the impossible, possible. So, the Swiss has still some hopes and that hinges on the performance of Roger. May be they are putting too much pressure on a 33 year old, who is also playing in his less favoured surface. But Roger, a seasoned professional that he is, can take the pressure in the right spirit and do wonderful things for his Country. What great service can he do for his Country other than to lead it to its first Davis Cup victory ? Roger knows that this is his last chance and he might not like to give up that easily and fight till the last moment.


Okiegal Says:

@Michael……Yeah, u r welcome! It pains me to brag on him……..ya know?? I’m kidding really, his year has been astounding, reminds me of Rafa’s 2013 come back year. These amazing athletes just keep giving us thrills and chills…..I want to include Novak too!!


Okiegal Says:

I bet the Davis Cup venues are a blast! The fans are loud and proud! How does it ever get quiet enough for Rafa to serve…….LOL!!


Margot Says:

Benneteau and Eddy RV were at O2, so can’t be that much of “perpetual underachievers” in dubs at any rate. In fact, can’t understand why the team wasn’t those two plus Simon and Monfils probably.
Allez Les Bleus.


Hippy Chick Says:

I still think the Swiss will win this,even if Tsonga does beat Federer,i think Stan is looking pretty confident and will beat Gael,as i cant see Gael backing up one great result with another,especially against two GS champions,they should win the doubles as they wont have to do as much running,still on the Swiss teams racket IMO…


Giles Says:

France is now the bookies’ favourite!
Allez France!
Vamos France!


Wog Boy Says:

I just finished watching Federer/Monfils match and I can say this, if Roger’s fans want to live in denial then blame the Roger’s back, but if they want to be realistic, Monfils thoroughly outplayed Roger in all departments of the game, Monfils, for once decided to play tennis and 27.400 fans appreciated that.


Hippy Chick Says:

Wogboy im actually sorry i missed the match,when Gael plays like that hes fantastic to watch,and can beat anyone on his day,shame he goes walkabout in many of his matches,will he turn up and play like that against Stan?who also looked impressive yesterday,anyway if both play like that then it will be interesting,i still think the Swiss will win 3/2….


Hippy Chick Says:

I still think Stan will beat Gael,in probably 4 or 5 tight sets,and i think Roger will beat Joe….


Wog Boy Says:

HC,

Tsonga is the weakest link.


van orten Says:

Go roger and Stan and win de doubles…now all pessimists can talk about how tired both will be tomorrow ..Jesus !!!! They are pros and will handle the pressureeee

Kommm jetza!!!!


brando GOAT poster Says:

A late twist: Federer and wawrinka seen practising together….. as expected. But France seem to be going with gasquet and…….Tsonga. my take: excellent move by team france. These 2 beat the excellent Czech team in doubles, jo is as strong as Benny mentally, experience wise also but more importantly: he’ll bring some explosive power and hitting that can trouble Federer especially. Him and gasquet can bring some heat, talent that can rival Fed-wawa. I think clement has made a smart move-if it happens- since gasquet-Benny lacks a bit of heat for me. But Tsonga-gasquet can match Fed-wawa stroke for stroke if it clicks. An experienced duo big talent for sure atleast.


SX1 Says:

Fedrinka vs Tsonga/Gasquet


brando GOAT poster Says:

Ah Davis cup sites says Fed-wawa v Benny-gasquet.


van orten Says:

It Has already been confirmed by the swiss media that they will play


brando GOAT poster Says:

Apparently Benny wasn’t supposed to play, jo practised with Richard but now a change of tact.


brando GOAT poster Says:

French players in tears at anthem-passion!!!! Jurgen Melzer @jojomelzer  ·  4m 4 minutes ago
You just saw how much it means to him. Jo showing some emotions. I love it. There is nothing better than @DavisCup #FRASUI


FedExpress Says:

u have to love stan who pushed fed yesterday

fed totally another player, energetic and focused


Polo Says:

It seems destined that the Davis Cup and the Olympic Gold (singles) will be the missing items in Federer’s mantel. But I can’t cry for him. He has been blessed so much already.


FedE Says:

@polo

why

first set 6-3 to switzerland. fed wants to prove a point. stan and fed are a perfect pair when it works


FedExpress Says:

@polo

why

first set 6-3 to switzerland. fed wants to prove a point. stan and fed are a perfect pair when it works

can see wawa or fed winning tomorrow their singles


Shailesh Says:

Wow Fed does look focused today, some body sure lit a fire in his backside :-)


Shailesh Says:

Phew, Swiss got out of the jail in that game.


Shailesh Says:

Second set is quite close, both teams managing to hold on


Giles Says:

Sooooo, wotz wrong with the old fella’s back? Lol


Giles Says:

C’mon TX. Don’t be a spoil sport


SX1 Says:

Come onw Suisse ..believe in Reeshard ..you can win it.


Bob Says:

Second set. Looks good.


Shailesh Says:

What a humdinger of a second set.


Shailesh Says:

What a hold from Gasquet!!


Shailesh Says:

Swiss has won the the third rubber and leads now 2-1. Fed played well today but i think Wawrinka was the better player today, he was playing some sublime tennis. However it must be said Fed looked super pumped, in fact i have rarely seen him this pumped ever. Also the camaraderie between the two Swiss fellas could not have been better. They were even laughing between some points. Was nice to see that.


Krishna Says:

The gamble by SUI has paid off! Stan and Fed have given them 2-1 lead and it was a straight set win under 2 hours! Tomorrow is going to be very interesting :) go Switzerland!


FedExpress Says:

what stuff did wilander smoke?

monfils will win, looks unbeatable. tsonga will bully fed around the court????

more pressure on fed, tsonga has no pressure?!?!?!WTF


sienna Says:

@Sean
are you ready to eat your humble pie?

in your analise you did not consider the fact that Fed is true gritt. They took it on the chin yesterday to get aan feel of the court and the back.

today we have seen why we call it the spirit of a champion.
You missed this tie with great margins. you probably are aan youngster and not knowledgable about tennis.


Giles Says:

So, looks like fed made a very fast recovery. He is going to play 3 consecutive days, best of 5 sets. Hmmm. Absolute miracle! Unless of course he didn’t have a bad back in the first place and his withdrawal from the WTF final was (1) he wanted to rest up for DC which apparently was more important to him and (2) didn’t want to be humiliated by joker. Not cool at all. Geez the way he was moving around today did not show any signs whatsoever that this man had back issues just a few days ago. He was moving like a spring chicken in fact!!
FAKERER!


SX1 Says:

keep yourself to dull fanboyism …even old man was 2nd worst player today only ahead of gasquet.


Rishi Says:

Don’t feel too bad, Giles. We Fed fans don’t even know who wins tomorrow. Regardless, as much as Gael played well, Roger did not put much much of a fight either yesterday.

And one more thing….if Rafa was in the same situation, most Fed fans like myself and the others in this forum would certainly not call Rafa a FAKAL.

:)


Viki Says:

@Giles

What wrong in it if federer is taking some lesson from others book. That’s why djoker is the best 365 days ready for fight.


FedExpress Says:

When fed withdrews for only the 3rd time in his career he is a faker.

and when nadal skips tournaments and comes miracally back like in 2013 he is a genius


van orten Says:

Fedexpress…the better question would be …what stuff did wilander snifff?…;)))


van orten Says:

Did fed ever take a mto during a semi or final ??;) yeah right he has not ..so just be quiet u fed haters or in swiss german: haltet die klappe!!!


skeezer Says:

“But France seem to be going with gasquet and…….Tsonga. my take: excellent move by team france. ”
Yes, apparently excellant move! Great take.

Those ignoramous’s about back issues;
Apparently the ones that whine here never had a back spasm. If that truly was it, you can come back in short order. A bulging disc pressing against a nerve is another thing. Keep the jealosy comments coming, am enjoying them :-).

With this win the Swiss have a chance now, a very good chance.
Go Swiss!


Bob Lewis Says:

If the Swiss win the trophy, I’d feel most happy for Stan. What a year it would be for him. DC would be huge for his CV.

@van orten: Fed did take a calculated restroom break during a match vs. Davydenko at the Australian. Because of the early evening shadow that made half of the court dark, the other half light. I think that was a semi. When he came back, he ran off like 12 games in a row.


Bob Lewis Says:

@Shailesh – the Swiss clearly drew on the Olympics doubles experience. Win or lose, they were going with their best. Easier to live with.

That said, it’s not over. The French still have a chance.


FedExpress Says:

@bob lewis

u r right, but it was the Quarterfinal of the AO 2010

davy should destroyed fed in the first set, up a break in the 2nd set and chance to go up double break, but nets a routine backhand and the rest is history. davy was done basically with his career


Giles Says:

van orten. In answer to your question Nov 22nd 12.57 pm, NO but he has committed the single most unsportsmanlike crime by withdrawing from the second most important event after the Slams, the WTF!!!! Not cool, not cool at all. Fans paid hundreds of $$$$ and travelled far and wide to see the Final that never was! Don’t know how he can live with himself. Fans received a 60% refund on their tickets. Fed should make up the total refund by shelling out the balance 40%. He can well afford it and that would go some way towards pacifying the disappointed fans.
FAKERER!!!


Giles Says:

PS. Should have said “withdrawing from the Final of the second most important event after the Slams….. “


SX1 Says:

By that logic dull should confiscate all his prize money!!


Polo Says:

Giles, the only one I see getting disappointed here is you…and only after Federer and Wawrinka won the doubles. That was a very delayed reaction, don’t you think?


Hippy Chick Says:

I knew the Swiss would win the doubles,and i think they will both win their singles matches,Tsonga might win a set against Fed but thats about it,and the Wawa/Monflis match will be more of a contest,but Stan will win it in 4 or 5 tight sets….


SX1 Says:

Some of dull fans are disappointed that old man have a chance to win DC so they can’t point it out again & again after last week injury they have high hopes that it won’t happen.


TennisVagabond.com Says:

Its all worth while to see the bile spewing from folks who have so much hate in their heart for a man they’ve never met, just because they cheer for a certain tennis player.

Beautiful. Spew your bile, boys. Feel that bitter taste. That is your nature you taste.


Tennis lover Says:

Even though, I like Rafael Nadal, I favoured him over djoker to win the FO, to my utter disbelief, I think Nadal’s career will be over after 2015. So, his fan’s should rather worry about it.


leo Says:

Don’t let the trolls ruin the mood you guys! Fact is that the Swiss team took a gamble today and pulled it off.

It is still a stretch for the Swiss to win the whole affair tomorrow… with Gael in great form and with Roger looking pretty shaky.

Doubles is one thing – there wasn’t a whole heap of lateral movement today. Not sure how the body will hold up in a much more physical tussle. I am sure Tsonga will be eager to redeem himself.

We’ll see… Vamos Switzerland!


Hippy Chick Says:

Im a Rafa fan who thinks the Swiss team will win the DC,Roger really wants this,and i believe Roger and Stan will win their matches,but please no Rafa retirement talk,the guy has said he wants to play the Olympics in 2016,so lets the players decide for themselves if or when they wish to retire grrrr….


Mr. Larvey Says:

Don’t really undersand the Fed-hate here. Life is so much more enjoyable without it.

Great stuff from the Swiss Duo! Even Bryan Brothers would have had their hands full with Wawa and Fed. Apparently no hate between the Swiss stars after all! Wawa is really on fire and Fed was on his level again. Interesting matches tomorrow!


Giles Says:

https://mobile.twitter.com/dougrobson/status/536219152453992449
Lol. No fed this is definitely not the last question you will answer about your back. Plenty more to come! Stay with it!


Bob Lewis Says:

I’m glad Davis Cup doubles uses ad scoring. Just thought it’s worth mentioning.


rogerafa Says:

Roger and Stan last won a DC doubles match in 2011. They had lost four straight doubles matches in DC before this win. I was surprised by their level of play but the patterns and tactics were not always exactly what you see in classic doubles. It was more about individual brilliance than about gelling together as a team. I feel sorry for JB who put in a spirited performance only to be let down by Richard. The duo of JB and ERV which won the RG this year would probably have been the better option. The Swiss team did not spend a lot of time on the court and that should help their cause for the reverse matches. I think France will go with Gilles versus Roger. Joe can blow hot and cold and can not make Roger run the way a Gael or Gilles can. Of course, a hot Joe can overwhelm Roger on clay due to the sheer firepower he has. I think it will go right down to the wire. If Stan and Gael can maintain their form, the decider could become an absolute epic.


the_mind_reels Says:

It’s interesting how some people act as if Federer is the only player ever to have withdrawn at the late stage in a big tournament. The last time I checked, his companions Nadal and Djokovic have each retired or withdrawn on numerous occasions from Grand Slam and Masters 1000 matches in the quarters, semis, and/or finals.

The guy is 33 years old, still competing at the very top of the game, and trying to manage a career-long back issue that has been known to flare up from time to time. Give it a rest. If you’re upset that he and his countrymen are having success, well, then I’m not sure what to say, because it’s sad to fume at other people’s accomplishments.


skeezer Says:

Giles,
Read 4:54 post. Rinse, repeat.


NK Says:

Agree with the_mind_reels. Never can understand what people gain by belittling other people’s accomplishments. What is sadder is that people like Giles can never say one thing good about Federer…there’s always a snide or mocking remark about whatever he says or does. Get over it. Trying once, just once, saying something genuinely good about Federer from the heart with no innuendos. I do it with players I don’t particularly like and it is enormously liberating. In trying to belittle others, you only belittle yourself.


Polo Says:

There is a positive side to Giles’ ongoing diatribe against Federer. I use it as a gauge on how significant he still feels Federer is to tennis. The more vile and bitter Giles’ post is, the more important Federer must be still.


Giles Says:

Polo. You console yourself with that diagnosis. You’ll feel better for it. Lol


Polo Says:

I haven’t given you my diagnosis yet, Giles. But glad to know you do still have the insight to feel that you have something that had to be diagnosed.

Why bringing No1e in conversation, and what is the lesson he took from No1e? The only lesson he could have from No1e would be the one he avoided by doing WO!
Next time leave him out of your conversation with Rafa fans since I don’t see Nole fans getting involved in Fedal wars, we are above that, we follow The Best Player in the World and he is The Best, not because he is doing WOs, but because he is playing the best tennis.

Go the blues, you can do it, remember 2010 and DC final in Belgrade, Serbia was 1:2 down and finished 3:2, now you do the same to accauntants from Swiss what Serbs did to you in 2010:)
