Why do you always assume the worst, maybe he just wants to help his country and now that the ties fit his schedule better he's just glad he can finally do that
If he really gave a shit, he'd have played the 1st round ties, most of them were winnable. Get them through there and preserve WG status and not have to worry about playing play offs.
My main beef is this. Federer has said he cares about the history of the game. That's fine and all, but Davis Cup is a very historical event, so he uses that history line, when it suits him. I mean if he doesn't want to play, fair enough, just leave that other crap out of it.
