TENNIS : FRANCE WINS DAVIS CUP !



TENNIS : FRANCE WINS DAVIS CUP !
After tasting three painful defeats in three Davis Cup Finals - - and after 16 years of long, agonizing wait - - France finally clinches its new Davis Cup crown in a series of nail-biting, see-saw rubbers against Belgium.

France @FFTennis celebrates before a wild crowd of 27,000 cheering inside the Pierre Mauroy stadium @StadePM in Lille @LilleFrance, with millions up and down France and elsewhere around the world, joining in.

"It's a feeling from another world", declares Lucas Pouille @La_Pouille, France's saviour and national hero, following their dramatic win. - - @BBCSport

France last won their Davis Cup Title in 2001 and had lost in the Davis Cup Finals in 2002, 2010 and 2014.

They stared in the face of another daunting defeat, after seasoned Jo-Wilfried Tsonga @Tsonga7, France's No. 1, was stunned by David Goffin @David_Goffin, Belgium's Top Gun and currently World No7, to level the tally 2-2, forcing a decider.

Against the momentum, France's Lucas Pouille @LaPouille came out blazing , and trashed Belgium's Steve Darcis @SteveDarciShark in the decider, 6-3; 6-1; 6-0 to seal France's emphatic victory.

Founded 117 years ago, Davis Cup @DavisCup is considered "The World Cup of Tennis", held annually where men's national teams from around the world, compete.

Crotia was on the verge of victory.

Just a few breaths from glory.

The whole nation, with its President cheering inside the arena, was all ready to celebrate.

Argentina was ready to cry.

With 1-2 down in the Davis Cup Final Team Tally , and Juan Martin Del Potro, their national hero, staring defeat at 0-2 down against Croatia's own national icon Marin Cilic in their Singles duel rubber, Argentina was on the brink of yet another painfully devastating loss -- their record 5th, it would be.

Marin Cilic was just 2 Games away from clinching victory against Del Potro, and the Davis Cup Final will be over.

Crotia will be the World Champions.

But then, the unthinkable happened.

From 0-2 down, Juan Martin Del Potro miraculously pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in tennis, and defeated Cilic, from 0-2 down, to 3-1!

Cilic, already smelled victory, didn't know what hit him.

Del Potro's incredible 'do-or-die' win leveled the Davis Cup Final Team Score to an equal 2-2.

By the skin of their teeth, Argentina survives.

Like a 'last seconds' helpline from heaven, Del Potro's win paved the way for the final face-off -- the decider. The decider that many thought was no longer gonna happen.

Croatia's Ivo Karlovic vs. Argentina's Federico Delbonis.

Singles duel.

The winner takes all.

The winner, his country will be World Champions.

And, like a valiant knight, the weight of his whole nation on his shoulders, Federico Delbonis -- the clear underdog vis-a-vis Karlovic -- delivered the best performance of his life, fought like there is no tomorrow.

He mercilessly slayed the big serving giant in 3 straight Sets!

Karlovic, the world's number 1 in aces -- a whopping 11,572 total aces in his career -- just didn't stand the Argentine's ferocious onslaught.

Delbonis prevailed 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 .

His astonishing win brings the Davis Cup Final Team Tally to 3-2.

Argentina 3 - Croatia 2.

Seemingly in a blink of an eye, in a sudden reversal of fortune, Argentina are the World Champions!

For the very first time, in 116 years!

Diego Maradona looks the happiest man on Earth!
