There’s more and more to share about the Swiss Davis Cup ties as we move along. Excitement was building with each match won, a total victory for Switzerland drawing ever closer. After what had become known as the Clusterfuck in Kazakhstan, no one wanted to underestimate Italy. Fans desperately hoped for less angst and drama this time around.

Despite some possible lingering disappointment in losing out at the US Open to eventual champion Cilic, Roger Federer was feeling good about the Davis Cup semifinals.

Right after this pic, Stan playfully pinched Fabio in the back, shocking the Italian. Or maybe it wasn’t so playful. Either way, the Swiss showed they know how to troll the competition, too. It was SO ON.
