Federer to join Wawrinka in Davis Cup quarterfinals in April

After helping Switzerland to victory over Serbia in the first round of the Davis Cup World Group, Roger Federer announced Monday that he has committed to playing the quarter-finals alongside Stanislas Wawrinka at home against Kazakhstan in April.

Federer joined Australian Open champion Wawrinka in giving Switzerland an unassailable 3-0 lead over a Novak Djokovic-less Serbia at the weekend, helping his nation to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2004 (l. to France).

Taking to Twitter on Monday, Federer announced, "Joining my friends, captain Seve and STAN against KazakhSTAN in April! #atmosphere #loud #fans #cowbells #switzerland #loveit"
Switzerland has never won the Davis Cup, with its best performance a runner-up showing in 1992 (l. to USA). Should Federer and the Swiss team defeat Kazakhstan in April, they would face either Great Britain, who won a World Group tie for the first time in 28 years with victory over the USA at the weekend, or Italy.
