FRIBOURG, SWITZERLAND: Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka lead Switzerland in this weekend's mouth-watering first round clash against USA in Fribourg. The pair discuss the importance of a home tie, the close bond that the Swiss team has and why Federer is just 'one of the boys'.

The American team know they are the underdogs this weekend but reveal what they think is their secret weapon and how strength in depth is key to Davis Cup success. Although clay is not their favourite surface, the Americans are convinced that they can cause an upset. Isner famously took Rafael Nadal to five sets in the first round at 2011 Roland Garros.

Swiss captain Severin Luthi explains what it means to have Federer playing in the team and how he sees his team doing in this year's Davis Cup.
