Federer To Join Wawrinka In Davis Cup Quarters
by ATP Staff|
After helping Switzerland to victory over Serbia in the first round of the Davis Cup World Group, Roger Federer announced Monday that he has committed to playing the quarter-finals alongside Stanislas Wawrinka at home against Kazakhstan in April.
Federer joined Australian Open champion Wawrinka in giving Switzerland an unassailable 3-0 lead over a Novak Djokovic-less Serbia at the weekend, helping his nation to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2004 (l. to France).
Taking to Twitter on Monday, Federer announced, "Joining my friends, captain Seve and STAN against KazakhSTAN in April! #atmosphere #loud #fans #cowbells #switzerland #loveit"

Switzerland has never won the Davis Cup, with its best performance a runner-up showing in 1992 (l. to USA). Should Federer and the Swiss team defeat Kazakhstan in April, they would face either Great Britain, who won a World Group tie for the first time in 28 years with victory over the USA at the weekend, or Italy.
