Federer 'excited' to be playing Davis Cup

Friday, January 31 2014 by SNTV
  • Intro:

    Roger Federer will return to the Davis Cup this weekend in Switzerland's first-round tie against Serbia and will play Ilija Bozoljac in his opening singles rubber, while newly-crowned Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka will face Dusan Lajovic, after the Swiss squad arrived in Novi Sad, Serbia on Thursday.


    SOUNDBITE: (English) Roger Federer:
    "Well, I mean I always kept a tiny, tiny door open.... so, I am just happy to be here to be quite honest. Spending a week with some of my best friends and.... playing here is something I was excited about when I left Australia. I wasn't feeling too tired and I spoke to.... (captain) Severin (Luthi) on Monday and also to Stan (Wawrinka) and we talked about it and then the decision was made pretty quickly. So, now clearly it's all about just preparation and I'm just really excited, seeing Stan play here after his amazing victory in Australia."
