Switzerland's already strong team just got stronger as 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer has joined Severin Luthi's squad in Novi Sad.

The Swiss team can now boast two Grand Slam singles champions in Federer and newly-crowned Australian Open champ Stanislas Wawrinka.

Team Switzerland is expected to make the announcement official prior to the cut-off of one hour before the draw is made on Thursday 30 January so it remains to be seen who will make way for the 32-year-old Swiss legend.

With Wawrinka now being Swiss No. 1 at a career-high ranking of No. 3, Federer, himself ranked No. 8 in the world, will play as the second singles player.

Could this be the year that Federer adds a Davis Cup title (the only major piece of silverware missing from his trophy cabinet) to his collection?
