Switzerland host Italy in what will be the nations' sixth meeting. Italy lead the head-to-head 3-2, but it is the Swiss who have come out on top in the most recent clashes, winning in 1999 and 2009.
Both teams were forced to comeback from 1-2 down in the last round to secure their semifinal berths. Roger Federer won the crucial fifth rubber against Kazakhstan's Andrey Golubev after surprise defeats for the Swiss team earlier in the tie. The Italians had to rely on final day wins from Fabio Fognini and Andreas Seppi to see off a Great Britain team led by Wimbledon champion, Andy Murray.
