World number three Roger Federer is aiming to set a historic feat for his home country of Switzerland for the upcoming Davis Cup final which will take place in Lille, France from November 21 to 23. The Swiss team will face France for a highly-anticipated 2014 Davis Cup final at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. The stadium, known as the home of French Ligue 1 football team Lille OSC, can accommodate up to 50,000 people. The final showdown is expected to generate a record crowd.
The matches will be contested on indoor claycourts. The record number of spectators at a Davis Cup match was the 2004 final between United States and Spain in Sevilla where 27,200 were in attendance.
The French team will be led by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Richard Gasquet and Gael Monfils while the Swiss team will be bannered by two top five players – Federer and Australian Open 2014 champion Stanislas Wawrinka.
