World number three Novak Djokovic and the unheralded Viktor Troicki swept Serbia to an historic first Davis Cup title on Sunday, overturning an overnight deficit to beat nine-time winners France 3-2.

Troicki, the world number 30, eased past Michael Llodra 6-2 6-2 6-3, after Djokovic had crushed Gael Monfils 6-2 6-2 6-4 to pull his country level with his sixth win in six Davis Cup ties this season.

"It's the best moment of my life," said Troicki, who had lost Saturday's doubles alongside Nenad Zimonjic to Llodra and Arnaud Clement, forcing his team to face a nailbiting last day.
