Roger Federer "very pleased" to reach Davis Cup final with Switzerland

World number three Roger Federer says that he is "very pleased" to have helped Switzerland reach the Davis Cup final, where they will face France in November.

Roger Federer has admitted that he is "very pleased" to be through to the Davis Cup final as part of the Switzerland team.

The world number three beat Fabio Fognini in straight sets earlier today to send the Swiss through with an unassailable 3-1 lead over Italy.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion told BBC Sport: "It's nice sharing the emotions with your fans and team members.

"It was a pretty quick court, so if you're not serving so well there are always going to be errors, it wasn't the best performance for either of us.

"Some of the best match-ups I've had have been against France, but we're very pleased to be in the final."

Switzerland will face France in the final in November.
