Switzerland captain Severin Luethi retained the four-man team which beat Italy in the semifinals: second-ranked Federer, Australian Open champion Wawrinka, Marco Chiudinelli and Michael Lammer.
 
Federer and Wawrinka will prepare for the Nov. 21-23 final in Lille by playing the ATP finals in London on indoor hard courts.

France captain Arnaud Clement has not finalized his selection but he chose Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Gilles Simon and Richard Gasquet -- all residents of Switzerland -- for a training camp in Bordeaux.
