Federer has announced today 9/11 that he'll play Davis Cup this weekend in Netherlands, and will arrive tomorrow. Obviously he waited for the results of yesterday's US Open before deciding as this is a very late commitment. What would his thinking be? Maybe that he won't have to play so many Asian tourneys because he's so far ahead of Djokovic and can play a lesser point event? Other ideas?
he may be ahead of Nole in the rankings now but he's 1000 points behind on the 2012 race
so he needs out perform Nole and by over 1000 points in the last four events to keep/finish #1 - and Nole is playing 5 events probably
