Davis cup final: Roger Federer takes Switzerland

Posted: September 15, 2014 in News

According to CNN,

The Davis Cup is the just about the only major honor in tennis to elude Roger Federer and the Swiss maestro took another big step to righting that omission Sunday as he led his country into November’s final against France.

Federer secured the winning point in his singles match against Fabio Fognini to give Switzerland an unbeatable 3-1 lead over Italy in Geneva.

The 17-time grand slam winner was never seriously troubled by Fognini, winning 6-2 6-3 7-6 in front of 18,000 fans in the Palexpo Arena.

A run of four straight games saw him take the opening set and a single break in the second was enough to forge further ahead.
