Paris:

World numbers two and four Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka will head up the Swiss team in the final of the Davis Cup against France this month.

The duo will be joined for the November 21-23 final in Lille, northern France, by Marco Chiudinelli and Michael Lammer, team captain Severin Luthi announced Tuesday.

The singles rubbers will feature the in-form Federer, eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Paris Masters by Canadian Milos Raonic, and Wawrinka, who opened the season with victory in the Australian Open.

The doubles pairing of Chiudinelli and Lammer played in the first round but ceded their places to Federer and Wawrinka in the quarter-finals.

In the semi-final against Italy, Chiudinelli partnered Wawrinka in a five-set defeat by Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini.
