Canada beat Australia in the final of the Davis Cup in Malaga to win the event for the first time in their history. They got off to a strong start as Denis Shapovalov beat Thanasi Kokkinakis in straight sets 6-2 6-4.
The Canadian World No 6 Felix Auger-Aliassime then put his country in an unassailable lead when he beat Alex de Minaur 6-3 6-4 meaning the doubles match was not required. It is the first time in the 109 year history of the competition that Canada has won the team tournament.
They reached the final in 2019 but lost to a Rafael Nadal inspired Spanish team. The triumph will be a landmark achievement for Canadian tennis and the country will hope this will be a springboard for future success.
