Roger Federer commits to Davis Cup quarters in April

Roger Federer has confirmed he will play for Switzerland in their Davis Cup quarter-final clash with Kazakhstan in early April.
The 32-year-old was part of the Swiss team that beat last year's finalists Serbia 3-2 at the weekend to book their spot in the last eight.

The team event is one of the only titles to elude the 17-time Grand Slam winner to date and he clearly sees this year as a chance to put that right.

Compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka has now taken his game to a new level with victory in the Australian Open and, together, they have an excellent chance of taking care of Kazakhstan to advance to the semi-finals.

The Swiss need Federer in the ranks to challenge at the very highest level and he gave the news that the team wanted to hear on Monday when tweeting: "I will line up with my friends, captain Seve (Severin Luthi) and STAN against KazakhSTAN in April."

Federer has not been a regular member of the Switzerland Davis Cup team in recent years but, now ranked eighth in the world and with Wawrinka third, he has committed to the event to try to land the prestigious title. (HA! I love the name of this site :D)
