Stanislas Wawinka: Davis Cup NOT a priority for Federer
Former Olympic Gold Medallist - Stanislas Wawrinka has criticized close friend Roger Federer for his lack of interest in playing the Davis Cup. Wawrinka had won that gold medal back in 2008 in Beijing with Federer by his side.

Close friends they might be, but the Stanislas Wawrinka certainly doesn’t like Roger Federer’s attitude towards the Davis Cup. Wawrinka who won a gold medal for his country with Federer back at the Beijing Olympics, says he understands Federer’s stand, but is disappointed.

The 31 year-old reigning Wimbledon champion said that if he chose to play the Davis Cup, he will have to drop other tournaments from his ATP calendar. The Swiss has already opted out of the Miami Masters.
“Roger has been saying for years that he wants to play the Davis Cup and it is important, but that’s apparently not the case,” Wawrinka said.

“It’s a shame how he interprets things to suit his own opinion. Davis Cup is not a priority for him at the moment.”

In the 2012 season, Federer played two ties in the Davis Cup, one against the United States and another against the Netherlands which was a World Group playoff.
