Canada became the 2022 Davis Cup Finals champions after they defeated Australia in the final tie in Malaga.
In their quarterfinal and semifinal ties, Canada needed the third doubles match to decide the tie and advance. However, in the final, two singles matches were enough for Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime to secure their country trophy for the best national team of the season.
The tie started with a match between Denis Shapovalov and Thanasi Kokkinakis that the Canadian won in two sets and paved the way for his compatriot to deliver a final hit.
Auger-Aliassime took on Australian no. 1, Alex de Minaur, who was determined to fight for every point. He had the first three break points of the match, but after failing to convert them, the Canadian got his chances.
He needed exactly three break points to break his opponent and win the first set 6-3 in 49 minutes. The second set was a show of unused chances by the Australian once again.
This time, he had five break points out of which he couldn't use any. On the other hand, his opponent had only one chance to break and he used it.
After an hour and 40 minutes, Auger-Aliassime defeated De Minaur 6-3, 6-4 and secure the second needed point for Canada to become the 2022 Davis Cup Finals champions.
