Tennis: Serbs' Viktory

Viktor TROICKI sealed Serbia's first Davis Cup title with a straight-sets win over France's Michael Llodra in the decisive fifth rubber in Belgrade.

Troicki won 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 after Novak Djokovic had earlier levelled the tie with a dominant win over Gael Monfils. Troicki's success sent a partisan home crowd into wild celebrations after the 24-year-old, who was born in the city, had been drafted in to replace Janko Tipsarevic for the do-or-die encounter.
