The FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique said that Roger Federer was the only player who rejected to play Davis Cup from the beginning. The Swiss spoke about the topic in a press conference in Shanghai. "I have never met him, so I don't know what we need to work on.
We didn't have a fallout. I put in a lot of energy into the Davis Cup over the years, I must tell you. I played a lot of matches. It's been a lot of work. Winning in '14 was a dream come true for Stan (Wawrinka) and me and the team, and (Marc) Rosset, even though he was not on the team, he thought it was the greatest thing ever, and it was.
And also for my coach and captain, Severin (Luthi), who is still the Davis Cup captain, I will never forget my good days there. I have not officially retired from the Davis Cup, so that means I don't know what to tell you, maybe, but obviously more likely no than yes, as I'm getting older and I have other things I would like to also do and go to places I have never played before", said Federer.
"It's one thing and then having the four children and the wife is another. You know, I just can't be everywhere. I always said when you play the Davis Cup you have to miss out on Masters 1000. Is that worth the give? Not always. Not for me anyway", the 20-time Grand Slam winner concluded.
