Croatia beat France, claim Davis Cup title for second time

Monday - November 26, 2018 7:34 am , Category : SPORTS
Lille (France), Nov 26 (IANS) Croatian tennis player Marin Cilic has defeated France's Lucas Pouille 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, 6-3 to secure his country's second Davis Cup title.
Cilic delivered the final blow to dethrone defending champion France 3-1 in the final on Sunday, held at the Pierre Mauroy Stadium in the northern French city of Lille, Efe news reported.
"It's not every day that you become a world champion!" Cilic said after two hour and 19 minutes of play.
"For us, it's a dream come true, for this nation, we are so passionate," he added. "You can see the fans, they are enjoying themselves, and I feel that in Croatia it is going to be incredible too."
Croatia won the 2005 final against Slovakia, and Cilic had been a part of the team that finished runner-up to Argentina in 2016.
The Davis Cup format is set to change next year from a year-long event to something more akin to a "World Cup of tennis," a move that was approved by the International Tennis Federation in August.
