Federer due in Australia Wednesday for Davis Cup

Sydney: Switzerland`s team manager has confirmed No. 3-ranked Roger Federer will arrive in Australia on Wednesday for the Davis Cup tennis tie against Australia starting Friday.

Federer will have little time to recuperate from Sunday`s five-set loss to Novak Djokovic in the US Open semifinals.

Manager Daniel Monnin was reluctant to talk about Federer at the Switzerland team`s media conference Tuesday, but said Federer would be in Sydney for the World Group playoff.

Stanislas Wawrinka, who lost in the second round at Flushing Meadows, said he is carrying a leg injury but was hopeful of being fit to play.
