NEW YORK (GaeaTimes.com) — Viktor Troiciki seems to be the hero of Serbia after it won the title of Davis Cup beating France. Troicki came in for the higher-ranked Janko Tipsarevic with the tie level at 2-2 and played superbly to defeat Llodra 6-2 6-2 6-3 in Belgrade.
World number three Novak Djokovic had earlier brought Serbia level with a 6-2 6-2 6-4 win over Gael Monfils. Serbia are the 13th nation to win the Davis Cup since its inception in 1900.
Serbia went into the final day trailing 2-1 after Llodra and Arnaud Clement had fought back from two sets down to claim a stunning win over Troicki and Nenad Zimonjic in Saturday’s doubles rubber. Djokovic played superbly in front of a fervent crowd of over 16,000 at the Belgrade Arena as he swept past Monfils in Sunday’s opening singles to level the tie.
