Auger-Aliassime brings Canada glory in 2022 Davis Cup Finals, adding to ATP Cup triumph

Felix Auger-Aliassime has brought Canada glory in the 2022 Davis Cup Finals after seeing off Alex de Minaur 6-3, 6-4 to seal the title for the very first time.

Canada add to their ATP Cup triumph earlier in the season which of course will be changed to the United Cup going forward, a tournament they won't win due to not entering a team.

But after a flawless week in Malaga, they have defeated Australia to seal the title with Denis Shapovalov doing his part early on by defeating Thanasi Kokkinakis 6-2, 6-4 to lead 1-0 in a finals day watched over by Novak Djokovic who bases himself down the road for most of the year.

After a dominant opening set from Auger-Aliassime, he went one away from the title at 6-3 and from there produced resolve himself to go one two away at 4-2 coming from 40-0 down to seal a hold.

De Minaur continued to fight but couldn't find a timely break in the end to potentially have the chance to send it all the way and Canada wrapped it up without needing a doubles tie.
