Jo-Wilfried Tsonga lifted France to the Davis Cup final via a 2-6, 6-2, 7-6(5), 6-2 win over Dusan Lajovic of Serbia on Sunday in Lille. Tsonga hit 38 winners including eight aces to beat Lajovic in two hours and 48 minutes as France avenged its loss to Serbia in the 2010 final with a 3-1 win in the best-of-five series. The win was Tsonga's 20th singles victory in his Davis Cup career.

Tsonga’s win gave Yannick Noah his third Davis Cup final appearance as captain but his first since 1996. Noah has not lost a final as a captain as France defeated Sweden in 1996 and the United States in 1991. In the final, France will go for its 10th Davis Cup crown against Belgium.

The Frenchman last won the Davis Cup in 2001 after beating Australia. After that, they placed second in 2002, 2010, and 2014.

Belgium, for its part, advanced to the final after victories by David Goffin and Steve Darcis in the reverse singles against Australia. Goffin, ranked No. 12 in the world, defeated Nick Kyrgios, 6-7(4), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4, It was a huge victory considering Goffin is winless in three outings against Kyrgios, losing to the Australian at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 legs in Miami and Cincinnati. Then, Darcis defeated Jordan Thompson, 6-4, 7-5, 6-2, to carry Belgium to its second final appearance in three years. In their head-to-head showdown in the Davis Cup, the Frenchmen lead the Belgians, 4-3. In 2001, France swept Belgium, 5-0, in the first round.
