Roger Federer has only two days to tune up for Switzerland's bid to break into the Davis Cup elite when they clash with Australia in their World Group playoff starting on Friday.

The 16-times grand slam champion, whose last match was a taxing five-set loss to US Open champion Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals at Flushing Meadows, arrived in Sydney on Wednesday, days after his team mates. Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka will be expected to carry Switzerland's hopes in the singles at Royal Sydney Golf Club against Australia's former world number one Lleyton Hewitt and Bernard Tomic.

Federer looked relaxed in a practise session on Wednesday, the 30-year-old training in both singles and doubles against practice partners in a possible preview of his weekend participation.
