Switzerland advances in Davis Cup, beats Serbia
Question of the Day
NOVI SAD, Serbia (AP) - Switzerland won the Davis Cup first-round tie against Serbia after Marco Chiudinelli and Michael Lammer beat Nenad Zimonjic and Filip Krajinovic in doubles for an unbeatable 3-0 lead on Saturday.
A confident Chiudinelli and Lammer defeated veteran doubles player Zimonjic and young Krajinovic 7-6 (3), 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-2. The Serb pair fought hard and appeared even, forcing a tiebreak in the first set and winning the second.
On Friday, Swiss stars Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka won the opening singles. Federer was making his first Davis Cup appearance since 2012.
Serbia, last year’s finalist, was playing without its three top players, Novak Djokovic, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki.
The second-ranked Djokovic decided to rest after losing to Wawrinka in the Australian Open quarterfinals, while Tipsarevic was nursing a heel injury and Troicki was serving a 12-month doping ban for failing to appear at a test. That meant 102nd-ranked Dusan Lajovic was Serbia’s highest-ranked team member.
Coach Obradovic said he hoped the top players will be back next year.
“All that is left is to reorganize and fight to stay in the World Group,” he said.
