London - The first round of the 2013 Davis Cup could feature a matchup between Roger Federer and Tomas Berdych, the man who beat him in the quarter-finals of the US Open two weeks ago.

Switzerland were paired against the Czech Republic in Wednesday's draw for the opening round of the World Group, setting up a potential head-to-head between two of the top players in the game.

World No 1 Federer has a career 11-5 record against Berdych, but the No 6-seeded Czech defeated him in four sets at the US Open. Berdych also beat Federer in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon in 2010 and at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Switzerland will be at home for the February 1-3 series. Federer does not always play in the early rounds of the Davis Cup.
