  • Pouille defeats Darcis in Davis Cup decider

"After 16 years, we finally got it, I'm very happy".

Goffin stormed to a double-break lead in the third set as Tsonga's resistance crumbled, and closed out the match with minimal fuss, but Darcis was unable to reproduce previous heroics against an inspired Pouille. "Now we're going to celebrate and enjoy it", said Pouille.

"Just look at the atmosphere and the emotion".

"I'm proud of my whole team and I am sure that we will win the Davis Cup together one day", said team captain Johan Van Herck, after Belgium again failed to break their Davis Cup duck following losses in the 1904 and 2015 finals.

"I was bad", Darcis said.

The win restored France's reputation as Davis Cup powerhouses as they joined Britain on the list of all-time winners far behind the USA (32) and Australia (28).

The world number 76 was defeated 6-3 6-2 6-1 by French number one Tsonga on Friday and demolished 6-3 6-1 6-0 in the deciding rubber by Pouille on Sunday.

Lucas Pouille eases to a straight-sets victory over Steve Darcis in Lille as France lift the Davis Cup for a 10th time.

But Darcis never got into the swing of the match and looked in trouble throughout.

Charismatic captain Yannick Noah reckoned that the "losing culture" of French men's tennis had been dispelled by the way his team had powered to their first Davis Cup title in 16 years on Sunday.

Pouille fell on his back and cried as his teammates rushed on court.

Noah, the last Frenchman to win a major tournament at the 1983 French Open, was vindicated in his selection after surprisingly picking Richard Gasquet to partner Pierre-Hugues Herbert for Saturday's crucial doubles victory.

Goffinhad pushed the tie into a fifth match with an impressive demolition of Tsonga.

The seventh-ranked Goffin, who also won his opening singles without dropping a set, delivered a superb performance to defeat France's top player.

Tsonga missed six break-point chances in a tense first set, and another went begging in the second when Goffin saw out the danger with a brilliant driving forehand followed by a volleyed victor at the net.

World number seven Goffin, the runner-up to Grigor Dimitrov at the season-ending ATP Finals in London last weekend, snatched a 75-minute opening set with a blistering backhand return in the tie-break.

"I put other things to one sides to be able to play and win this competition".
