    Points won by each set: | 33-25, 29-27 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    25 % Auger – 16 of 63
    35 % De Minaur – 18 of 51

    Recipe to have the best tennis team in the world? Top 10 & Top 20 players in singles (who are good at the net) + doubles specialist. Canada was the best in 2022, no doubt about it – in January they won the ATP Cup, in November they triumphed for the first time in Davis Cup. Auger [6], who got deciding points in both finals, didn’t play his best match against De Minaur [24] – Auger’s serve was below standards, his doubtful backhand at its normal level, yet it was enough to defeat De Minaur [24], who was trying everything he could. “The emotions are tough to describe,” Auger-Aliassime said, “Denis and I grew up together, dreaming of these types of stage, dreaming of winning the Davis Cup. It’s a great moment for myself and for the country.” Prior to 2022, Auger was losing all his ATP finals, playing the last matches of tournaments isn’t a problem for him anymore – he has won 4 ATP titles this year + 2 finals of team competitions. I think he should claim his first major title next year. Nadal & Djokovic are still great, but the Canadian is 14 & 13 years younger, and has already defeated them both while his H2H record against the best player – Alcaraz – is 3:0.

    Final (Malaga): CANADA d. AUSTRALIA 2-0
    Denis Shapovalov d. Thanasi Kokkinakis 6-2, 6-4
    Felix Auger-Aliassime d. Alex de Minaur 6-3, 6-4
    Denis Shapovalov/Vasek Pospisil – Max Purcell/Jordan Thompson, cancelled

    Canada’s route to the title:
    round robin: Korea 2-1, Spain 2-1, Serbia 1-2… (Valencia in September)
    Q: Germany 2-1, S: Italy 2-1, W: Australia 2-0… (Malaga in November)

    Singles: Auger 5-1, Shapovalov 1-2, Pospisil 1-1, Diallo 0-1
    Doubles: Pospisil 4-1, Auger 3-0, Shapovalov 1-0, Galarneau 0-1

    Canada (being deprived of injured Auger & Shapovalov) lost in the qualifying round 0-4 to Netherlands but was invited to the finals due to removal of Russia (political reasons)
