Canada defeats Australia to claim its first Davis Cup tennis championship


MALAGA, Spain – Canada won its first Davis Cup title on Sunday, beating Australia with victories over Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Montreal’s Auger-Aliassime defeated Australian Alex de Minaur 6-4, 6-3 on Sunday to clinch Canada’s first Davis Cup championship.

Shapovalov, of Richmond Hill, Ontario, won Canada’s first singles match – 6-2, 6-4 against Thanasi Kokkinakis – on Sunday.

The emotions are hard to describe, Auger-Aliassime said. We grew up together and dreamed of being on this podium, winning these kind of games, winning the Davis Cup. It really is a dream come true. That’s what we play for. That’s what sports are for. It was a great moment for us and for the country.

Shapovalov had dropped both of his singles matches this week and needed treatment on the back during Saturday’s three-set semifinal loss to Italy’s Lorenzo Sonego that lasted 3 hours and 15 minutes. But the southpaw moved quickly down the field on Sunday, setting up corners to chase away winners as he raced to a 4-0 lead in the first set.

(I’m) absolutely thrilled to get a singles win for the team. You know, I felt close the last two games. The races were good, but he just didn’t cross the finish line, Shapovalov said.

Auger-Aliassime then concluded its excellent second half of the season with a perfect week in Spain. He had kept the Canadians alive twice after Shapovalov dropped the opening singles match, and on Saturday replaced his tired teammate to join Vasek Pospisil for the deciding double.

This time he made sure the doubles match wouldn’t even be necessary.

It was Canada’s second Davis Cup final in four years.

A Canadian side featuring Shapovalov, Auger-Aliassime and Vasek Pospisil advanced to the 2019 final, losing 2-0 to Spain.

Vasek has been part of the Davis Cup for many years, has won many matches. I remember watching him play as a child. Won many pairing matches. Then to let the rest of the young guys come forward and play well. It’s a special team Auger-Aliassime said. Hopefully, you know, we can take this very far, you know, this generation.

The win automatically qualified Canada for the 2023 Davis Cup Finals.
