Lucas Pouille throttled Belgium's Steve Darcis 6-3, 6-1, 6-0 in the decisive fifth rubber to clinch a 10th Davis Cup title for France in front of a passionate Lille crowd. Belgian ace David Goffin levelled the final at two points apiece after beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets in Sunday's opening reverse singles, but a revitalised Pouille propelled France to a first victory since 2001. Pouille was beaten convincingly by Goffin in Friday's first singles tie, but the world number 18 shook off that defeat to swat Darcis aside in one hour and 34 minutes. "There's nothing better than winning as a team, with my mates, in front of the fans, my family and my friends," Pouille told French television.
