1 In the 1996 final versus Croatia, the Swiss team was forced to retire from the mixed doubles with the score at 5–5 in the final set, thus handing the championship to Croatia. This was due to a hand injury sustained by the Swiss player, Marc Rosset, when he punched the backboard in frustration at having not taken match points.[2]
2 In 1997, a back injury prevented Marc Rosset from competing in his singles matches in the ties against both Romania and South Africa as well as the mixed doubles against South Africa.[3]
