Roger Federer will spearhead Switzerland's bid to reach the Davis Cup final for the first time against Italy in Geneva this weekend and in so doing put himself within striking distance of one of the few prizes that have eluded him.The 17-time Grand Slam champion has won all the top titles in tennis during his stellar career with the exception of Olympic singles gold and the Davis Cup.This time around the Italians will field 17th-ranked Fabio Fognini and 48th-ranked Andreas Seppi, neither of whom are thought likely to trouble world No. 3 Federer and No. 4 Wawrinka.The task on the familiar clay courts at Roland Garros looks huge with the French able to choose from U.S. Open semifinalist Gael Monfils, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Richard Gasquet and Julien Benneteau.
