Federer, The Sole Top Four, is Playing Davis Cup

Since the days he first began winning Grand Slam titles, Roger Federer has repeatedly insisted that one of his career goals was to win the Davis Cup for Switzerland. But now, two years have elapsed since the 30 year –old won the last of his record 16 singles majors, there seems to have been a distinct reassessment. "It doesn't matter when and where it is, it's all a matter of priorities. My team is a group of great friends, that's what I enjoy about it, that I can spend some time with them, and hopefully try to win but if we don't it doesn't matter. It's about trying your best and having a good time.”

The 30-year-old Federer will devote his Games energies to the singles event and the doubles where he won the 2008 Beijing gold medal with Stanislas Wawrinka.
