The Swiss Davis Cup team will play for a return to World Group 1 next spring. Dominic Stryker and Mark Andrea Hausler will secure a decisive third place with a 6:4, 7:6 victory over the Vladimir Ivanov/Matthias Semar Point duo in a duel with Estonia.
The Swiss got off to a great start in the game. They can take the first service game from the Estonians at zero. They can’t be taken away from that lead and after 28 minutes they use the first set ball.
Round two is a little more competitive. But Stricker/Hüsler continues to serve well, not giving their opponents any break points for the entire match. Since you can’t use your only option in the second set yourself, a tiebreaker should lead to the decision. There the Swiss gained the upper hand in 7:4. After 81 minutes, victory dried up.
After Friday’s singles competition, the Swiss won the double without losing a set, sealing the match with Estonia 3-0 to themselves.
Although the decision has already been made, Henri Laaksonen (ATP 119) and Jerome Kim (ATP 1113) still compete in the final singles. She keeps the white jacket for the Swiss and they both win without losing a set. Laksonen defeats Daniel Glinka (ATP 818) with 7:6, 6:4 and Kim defeats Sim Trost (ATP 1580) with 6:3, 6:1. (Bear)
