2014 Davis Cup final in Lille

2014 Davis Cup final

At 1-1 after the first day (see my recap here), I was pretty sure the pair of Tsonga and Gasquet would beat the Swiss, and then Federer would win over Tsonga on Sunday, and the winner of the deciding rubber between Monfils and Wawrinka would offer the Davis Cup to his country. How wrong I was…

French number one Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was in fact injured, and Benneteau teamed up with Gasquet to face Federer and Wawrinka.

Guy Forget and Henri Leconte

Guy Forget and Henri Leconte, the heroes of the 1991 Davis Cup final and one of the best Davis Cup doubles pair ever, were honored on court ahead of the match:

Federer/Wawrinka vs Benneteau/Gasquet

As a French supporter this doubles match was a nightmare: Gasquet was totally lost on court, Julien Benneteau did all he could to help Gasquet, and Arnaud Clément was completely useless.
Straight sets victory for the Swiss, with a monster performance by Stan Wawrinka.

Second set Switzerland:

Game, set, match Switzerland:

At 2-1 for the Swiss, I knew it was already over and I would watch Federer’s win over Gasquet on TV. What a disappointment.
