Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert celebrate victory in a thrilling doubles clash

Defending champions France still have a chance of retaining the Davis Cup after winning the doubles rubber against Croatia.

Croatia were 2-0 up in this year’s final after Friday’s singles matches in Lille, meaning one more point would earn them a second Davis Cup title.

But they were denied on Saturday, as French duo Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut beat Mate Pavic and Ivan Dodig 6-4 6-4 3-6 7-6 (7-3).
