Davis Cup teams

Saturday sees doubles action take place on the second day of the Davis Cup final at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in Lille, France.

How it Works:

The finals take place over three days with two teams of four meeting against each other in a series of five matches.

After Friday;s opening day, Saturday introduces doubles action as Switzerland's Marco Chiudinelli and Michael Lammer take on French duo Julien Benneteau and Richard Gasquet.

Sunday's final day brings the reverse of Friday's singles meetings with the team with most victories crowned champions.

Where to Watch:

Coverage of day two begins at 12:30pm (GMT) on British Eurosport 2 until 6pm. Live updates will also be available via the Davis Cup official website while IBTimes UK will be providing daily round-ups of the action.


France's superior depth compared to that of Switzerland is likely to be at its most evident in the doubles action. Swiss captain Severin Luthi has named Marco Chiudinelli and Michael Lammer to take on Julien Benneteau and Richard Gasquet but has until one hour before the start of the match to change his mind.

With the points shared after the first day following Stanislas Wawrinka's victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Roger Federer's shock defeat to Gael Monfils, there is all to play for. Benneteau has climbed to 25th place in the ATP rankings in recent months, a personal best for the 32-year-old. He reached the final of the Malaysian Open in September.

His partner Gasquet sits just one place behind him in 26th. He was integral to France's semi-final win over the Czech Republic, defeating Tomas Berdych in straight sets on the opening day before teaming up with Tsonga to claim a valuable third point. The two shared success at the Olympics where they secured a bronze medal in London 2012.

If Switzerland are to win the Davis Cup for the first time, Chiudinelli and Lammer, who are ranked 212th and 508th in the world respectively, will have to provide something special, providing their coach Luthi doesn't make any last minute alterations.
