Switzerland through to Davis Cup quarterfinals

2/1/2014 6:59:00 PM

NOVI SAD - Switzerland secured its place in the quarterfinals of the Davis Cup World Group on Saturday evening, after Marco Chiudinelli and Michael Lammer defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Filip Krajinovic 7-6 (7-3), 3-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-2 in the doubles match that was played in Novi Sad. Thus, the Swiss team took a 3-0 lead in the Davis Cup first round tie, which the Serbian tennis players have no chance of reaching. 

Two singles matches are to be played on Sunday, but they cannot change anything in terms of qualifications. Dusan Lajovic will face Roger Federer, and then Ilija Bozoljac will play Stanislas Wawrinka at the Spens Arena in Novi Sad.
