Federer Burnishes Legacy as the Swiss Capture a Long-Sought Title,  by Christopher Clarey

Villenneuve D’Ascq, France–“It looked like an ending, with the confetti floating down and a record crowd watching Roger Federer and his Swiss teammates celebrate for the first time with the big, bright and shiny Davis Cup…”

Stan Wawrinka beat Jo-Wilfred Tsonga in the opening singles match; Wawrina and Federer were victorious in the doubles;  and Roger Federer’s 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Richard Gasquet gave the Swiss “an insurmountable 3-1 advantage over the French.”

Wawrinka:  “…We made many sacrifices during the years to be able to win it.  We did it now.  We are very happy.”

Federer.”We had a good time since match point.”

Match point is the last point of the game.  For more information, please go to http://www.sportsidioms.com.
