I'd say it's the opposite.
In 2012, the teams tried to win the tournament and because of that, they tried to lose a match to increase their chance of winning.
In FedCup, the players try to win their matches, but overall, the team tries to "lose" the tournament. They do that by sending a team and lineup that cannot win even if all the players who play try their best.
Difference is: At the Olympics, people try everything to win. At the FedCup, no one gives a fuck.
