  • Tie Summary

    Australia won all four previous ties played between these two countries, the last one dating back to 2006.

    Despite an early upset in the first rubber, Australia managed to beat China in Beijing 3-1 and book a place in the World Group playoffs. The Chinese proved to be very competitive on home soil and took the first point of the tie. However, young star Bernard Tomic won the second rubber for Australia and paved the way for a victory that would be confirmed by Lleyton and Guccione in the doubles and again by Hewitt in the fourth singles rubber.

    Roger Federer, in his return to the Swiss team, and Stanislas Wawrinka did the entire job in the Europe/Africa Group I tie that Switzerland played against Portugal in Bern. The two Swiss stars took the first two rubbers and secured the ticket to the playoffs with a victory in the doubles match.

    Australia, the second most succesful Davis Cup nation, has only spent 4 years outside the World Group since its creation in 1981.
