Roger Federer added another achievement to his illustrious career as he comfortably defeated Richard Gasquet 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 in the first reverse singles as Switzerland became the 14th country to win the Davis Cup trophy.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was scheduled to play in the first reverse singles but he pulled out & the French Davis Cup captain Arnaud Clément decided to replace him with Richard Gasquet.

 

 

Federer who had won 12 of his 14 matches against Gasquet before this match looked in complete control. Not only his movement, his backhand, his forehand on the stretch, his service, his volleying all looked to be in the 2014 form.

 

 

Federer looked faultless throughout the match. Gasquet on the other hand tried his level best but he couldn't match Federer as the Swiss maestro was determined to finish the tie.

 

 

1st Set

 

 

Federer broke Gasquet's service in the 5th game and that one break of serve was enough as Federer won the 1st set 6-4 in 44 minutes.

2nd Set

 

 

Federer didn't face a break point in the second set as well. He broke the French man's service in the 4th and the 6th game to win the second set 6-2 in just 25 minutes.

 

 

Here are the second set stats ----

3rd Set

 

 

The Swiss maestro once again broke Gasquet's service in the 5th and the 7th game and comfortably ended the match in the 8th game winning the 3rd set 6-2.

 

 

This is how Federer reacted after winning his 1st ever Davis Cup title ----

"This one is for the boys." said Federer, who was in tears. "This is not for me, I have won enough in my career. I am just happy for everyone else and we can give everyone a historic moment in our country."

 

 

Federer also paid tribute to Stan Wawrinka, "Stan has put in so much effort over the years and he played an unbelievable weekend and that is what gave me the opportunity today," added Federer.

Both the captains decided to cancel the 5th dead rubber and Team Switzerland won the tie 3-1.

Czech Republic,

 

Russia,

1) 2006: 92-5,

 

2) 2005: 81-4,

Great to see tears of happiness from Roger today after all that has happened in the last week.

The pressure was on as Roger Federer stepped onto the court today. Could he seal the victory for the Swiss, or would that task be passed on to Stan in the final rubber? Confidence rose as the match progressed. Roger played well, he was aggressive, served with confidence and remained outwardly calm despite the baying crowd. I was perturbed by the booing, especially in the first set but I guess the fans let their passion get the better of them at times.

In the end the match point was cheeky flick over the net from Federer. The release of emotion then was totally overwhelming.

What a performance from the great man.

And that drop shot at the end to win it, just fantastic.

This should put him in great confidence for next season.

Though, almost every one seems to be giving credit to Stan Wawrinka & Federer for this win, but, according to me the real hero of the victory was Severin Luthi.

 

 

 

 

He is the unsung hero & the best man to lead the Swiss team. Congrats Seve....

 

 

& just two quick stats,

 

 

Stan Wawrinka is the 2nd man in the history after Andre AGASSI to win his debut major & then, Davis Cup title in the same year.

 

 

Stan Wawrinka ended the year with 39 wins, which is a new record for the minimum number of wins for a player ending the year in ATP Top-4 since the current ranking point methodology came about in 2009... He surely had great highs and some lows as well...

You make a very good point there Vibhu. Severin Luthi is the largely unsung hero of this Team. His quiet support, encouragement and excellent planning in arranging for the Bryan Brother's coach, David MacPherson to join the team to advise the doubles partnership, was a stroke of sheer genius!

Yes, congratulations to the players for getting the job done on court, but let's not forget Seve!

Congratulations Seve!
