It depends. Davis Cup is a check mark that is necessary to have for a player with high aspirations. But 2nd Davis Cup does not add nearly as much to the resume. Unlike 2nd Slam or 2nd YEC. This year Medvedev checked two big ones. I'm not sure that he will be as relentless in his dedication next time, regarding Davis Cup. After Novak won his Davis Cup in 2010, next time he played full campaign in 2013. Not counting one match in 2011, which he lost to DelPo.

Yes, that has been the pattern..Federer and Nadal have played once just to win the whole thing, then they play only when needed to avoid elimination, then they go away...Federer had even said as much..

No, c'mon. Rafa has made it clear that he played DC over and over for love of country. He had 4 of the original one, 1 of the new version.
My god, it's full of stars!

Really? Must have missed that..Federer certainly intended to play just once...

Federer and some other players play to win one and then plan to qualify for the Olympics. Which is their right, of course.

He was fined and suspended from WTA events for a year... but this was back in 2014.
