Reuters is reporting here that Marc Rosset has been sacked as the Swiss Davis Cup captain, and my only question is, What took so long? Federer didn’t play for Rosset in the last tie, but he’ll be available for the next one: coincidence, or all part of a grand master plan, still obscure to the rest of us? Oddly, Jakob Hlasek left the team for similar “internal” reasons just two years ago, with the job going to the man Federer backed—Rosset. This is kind of weird and I’m making a note to check with my Swiss colleagues during the U.S. Open to see what this was all about.

When things are this muddled, and discussed in such generalities, it’s almost always about money.
