Croatia won its second Davis Cup title on Sunday when Marin Cilic beat Lucas Pouille 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-3 in the first Sunday singles to clinch for the Croats 3-1.
That victory meant that Cilic, and fellow singles star Borna Coric won all their rubbers without dropping a single set or service game.
Cilic was part of the side that lost 3-2 to Argentina in 2016 showpiece and he was ruthless in ensuring his country did not suffer another heart-breaking defeat.
In spite of pushing Cilic hard in the first set, he lost the last four points of the tiebreak and never threatened a comeback.
In the 11th game already Cilic had a great chance to break Tsonga made a unforced error and gave the opponent the second set. Two went begging but Cilic would not be denied a third time as his glorious forehand lob put the disappointment of two years ago to bed.

Earlier, the 12th-ranked Coric was flawless and Chardy was powerless to counter his deep groundstrokes in the first set, dropping 14 consecutive points at one point to trail 4-0.
In that match in Zagreb, he was two sets to the good against Juan Martin del Potro and required just one more set to give Croatia a match-winning 3-1 lead.
And when he broke the Frenchman's serve at 2-2 in the third, any lingering belief Pouille had retained quickly ebbed away.
