Roger Federer confirmed he will be taking part in the next season's Davis Cup opening round here in the US on his website today:
Dear Fans,Yay! This is great news for US fans but probably not the best news for the US team, however. Fed could single-handedly (and I mean that literally) defeat the team even on their home turf.
After making it back to the world group for 2009, I have decided to play the first round tie of Davis Cup in the USA in March. I am excited to once again join my fellow Swiss teammates, who I have a great friendship with, and I look forward to what I am sure will be a tough weekend.
All the best,
Oh well - that won't stop me from being there!
