Davis Cup: Switzerland leads Italy 1-0

The Associated Press

GENEVA (AP) Roger Federer gave Switzerland a 1-0 lead over Italy in the Davis Cup semifinals by beating Simone Bolelli 7-6 (5), 6-4, 6-4 Friday.

Federer, seeking to help the Swiss to a first Davis Cup title, was rarely under pressure at the Palexpo indoor arena.

The 76th-ranked Bolelli hit more winners than Federer 33 to 30 but failed to convert any of his three break-point chances.

Federer improved to 36-7 in Davis Cup singles, including 15-1 on hard courts.

Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka was playing 17th-ranked Fabio Fognini in the second match.

In the other semifinal series, France leads the two-time defending champion Czech Republic 2-0.
