Federer Notches Sweet 16 vs. Youzhny in Dubai

The 17-time Grand Slam champion, who helped Switzerland win its first ever Davis Cup title in 2014, says the event has cluttered up his schedule for many years, and he feels that now the Swiss have the long-sought-after title he can back off.

"It wasn't a difficult decision," Federer said Monday at the Dubai tournament, according to the AP. "I have played for so long, and I think by winning it I can finally do whatever I please, to be quite honest."

He added: "It's been a big burden for me throughout my career and one of the things that have caused more difficulties in my life than many other things, I must say. I always feel there is so much guilt put on you from the federation or from the ITF more so than anybody else. So I'm happy I was able to finally tick that off and do it altogether."
