BERN, Switzerland (AP) Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka will lead Switzerland's bid for its first Davis Cup title against host France this month.

Switzerland captain Severin Luethi retained the four-man team which beat Italy in the semifinals: second-ranked Federer, Australian Open champion Wawrinka, Marco Chiudinelli and Michael Lammer.

Federer and Wawrinka will prepare for the Nov. 21-23 final in Lille by playing the ATP finals in London on indoor hard courts.

France picked a clay surface to play on under a retractable roof at the 27,000-capacity Pierre Mauroy Stadium.

France captain Arnaud Clement has not finalized his selection but he chose Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Gilles Simon and Richard Gasquet - all residents of Switzerland - for a training camp in Bordeaux.
