Roger Federer gave Switzerland and himself a first Davis Cup title Sunday in Lille, pounding Richard Gasquet of France in straight sets to ensure the winning point.It was a great sporting triumph for Switzerland, the 14th nation to win the Davis Cup, and a huge personal milestone for Federer to go with his 17 Grand Slam titles, six Masters titles and Olympic doubles gold.Gasquet could make no inroads at all on the Federer serve and he was struggling manfully each time to hold his own.It was all to no avail, as a calm-as-you-like Federer brought up three more break points and converted the second of those, to pocket the second set.Gasquet put up some desperate late fight at the start of the second set, garnering a few points on the Federer serve, but he failed to earn a single break point.
