If I were a Swiss fan I would be pissed at Federer for skipping the 1r tie and sending the SUI team back to the world group playoffs. The team needed him in their opening round match so that if they win then it doesn't matter what happens later because next year they're still entered into the main draw. I foresee that if somehow GBR upsets SUI Federer won't bother with DC anymore since the team will fall even further and have to win more than one tie to qualify.
