Roger Federer said Tuesday he was "hopeful" he would be able to play in the Davis Cup final against France Friday despite the back injury he sustained in London.Federer sustained the back injury playing in the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Finals in London Saturday evening during a grueling three-set match against Swiss teammate Stan Wawrinka.Were Federer to miss the final, it would be a huge body blow to Swiss hopes as although Wawrinka at fourth in the world is comfortably ranked above all the French players, after him the fall off in the Swiss team is steep with Marco Chiudinelli 212th and Michael Lammer 508th.Federer had saved three match points in the 10th game of the deciding set in that match and it was poised at 5-5 and 40-40 in game 11 when Warwinka gestured to Federer's box asking that they not make noise in between serves.
