Question Do you think Fed will play next year in Davis Cup 1st round?

I mean, in the World Group, not like this year only for the play offs.
He and Yves Allegro prove to be a quite good team and Wawrinka becomes a more and more solid player.
Will he play or not?
Maybe he has already said something about that? Could u tell me?

When he decides that he wants to win the Davis Cup...I imagine he will.

It seems that the French Open is a greater priority for him...breaking Pete's 14 GS record may even eclipse Davis Cup too.

Ok thanks!
So he hasn't pronounced himself yet.
Suspens!
Yeah I agree on the fact that winning French Open is a greater priority for him.
But he can win both FO and Davis Cup in a near future IMO

I think he would play if he has to play away on clay let's say in Argentina because he wants to to test his clay game whilst practicing for FO

There an only be One Nadal

He indicated this past week that he would have a hard time playing in February. Obviously slams are more important to him right now. But were he not to do well at AO maybe he would decide to play.

I doubt it. If Switzerland were able to cope without him and sneak into the quarter finals I think he would play then in hope of actually winning it.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Only hope would be when Sui plays Australia - then he might as well stay in Australia till after the tie - oder than that I don't think he'll play the first round tie

I also think it'll depend on the draw and surface where they'll play

if it's clay, forget it

Depends on the draw.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Do you think Fed will play next year in Davis Cup 1st round?

The chances of Switzerland winning DC are slim.
They have two rubbers guaranteed at each tie. But the rest are up for grabs.
The powerhouse DC nations should beat them 3-2.

But like Jorje' said. They could get Aus in the semis, and Slovakia in the final.

And yes, I do think Fed will play the opening tie. More so if he skips Basel,

Re: Do you think Fed will play next year in Davis Cup 1st round?

I think that someday he'll think: I want the Davis Cup. This day he'll play in every tie and lead his team to victory (or not). Right now that's not his priority.

Re: Do you think Fed will play next year in Davis Cup 1st round?

There's no reason why Switzerland can't win the Davis Cup. Federer will beat anyone on any surface, except Nadal on a slow surface. Federer and Allegro will beat the majority of doubles pairs and Wawrinka would beat most opponents on a slow surface.

In fact, with Federer in the team, I can't think of a single country who would beat them, when playing in Switzerland.
