Roger Federer has confirmed his participation in Switzerland’s first round Davis Cup tie against the U.S. next year.
Though translation, Federer said “I am delighted to play against the U.S., especially since we home and can compete with the generous support of our fans. We had a great year with the meetings in Bern and Sydney and the atmosphere and team spirit in our team tremendously well.”
The tie will be played on indoor red clay in Freiburg, Switzerland on February 10-12.
USA leads Switzerland 2-1 but lost the lone time Federer played in 2001. US captain Jim Courier has not released the names of his team, but Andy Roddick, Mardy Fish, John Isner and the Bryans are the likely targets.
Federer has not played a World Group first round Davis Cup match since 2004. He has a 30-6 singles record in the event.
Federer finished 2011 on a high note winning his last three tournaments including the ATP World Tour finals.
