17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer says he will reach a decision regarding the Davis Cup in the next few weeks. The Swiss No. 1 last participated in a Davis Cup tie in 2012 against the United States but prior to that had not competed for his national team since 2004.
“In the next few weeks I will make a decision about the Davis Cup.”Federer said in an interview posted on the web site of his sponsor, Credit Suisse. “But at the moment I have no idea what it will be.”
Following his split with Paul Annacone in July, the former World No. 1 is yet to hire another coach for his upcoming season. He says he is happy working privately with Swiss Davis Cup captain Severin Luthi and is satisfied with his team at the moment.
“In Severin, I still have a coach who has been extremely helpful for me for a long time. But I don’t know if he can or wants to be on the road with me for 40 weeks next year. At the moment, I don’t know if I am going to appoint a new coach at all. I’m very happy with my team.”
