Melbourne, 6 September 2011 |

Roger Federer will lead the Swiss Davis Cup team later this month in Sydney.

Overnight the Swiss Tennis Federation announced a full-strength line-up of Roger Federer, Stanislas Wawrinka, Stephane Bohli and Marco Chiudinelli.

The Australians are yet to name their team, but will need to do so shortly with the deadline looming.

For Pat Rafter, it’s a daunting proposition, but no doubt Bernard Tomic and Lleyton Hewitt, if fit, will figure prominently in the Australian captain’s calculations.

The winner of this tie will be awarded a spot in the World Group in 2012. The Swiss will be hoping to avoid relegation from the elite eight after an opening round loss to Kazakhstan earlier this year.
