Roger Federer beat Richard Gasquet to seal Switzerland’s first Davis Cup triumph, then dedicated the victory to his team-mates.
The 17-time Grand Slam champion beat France’s Gasquet 6-4, 6-2 and 6-2 to give the Swiss an unassailable 3-1 lead.
“This one is for the boys”, said Federer, who was in tears at the end of the match.
“This is not for me, I have won enough. I am just happy we can give everyone in our country a historic moment”.
Federer, 33, also paid tribute to compatriot Stan Wawrinka, who helped set up the victory in Lille by beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga before partnering Federer to win the doubles.
Federer and Wawrinka were involved in a row at the ATP Tour Finals in London, which the world number two later described as “heat of the moment”.
