    5-1 Tipsarevic in the tiebreak. Surely he'll win this now.

    This is freaking unbelievable. I don't think Tipsarevic will be sleeping anytime this year if he somehow lets this one slip.

    Nice point to end it :)

    EDIT: Hope Pospisil is OK after that fall.

    Good way to finish it. Serbia needs to be in the final or it would have been boring with Canada and the Czechs.

    What a ****ty way for that to end for Pospisil, especially since that was such a great volley on a pivotal point.

    Phew, he managed to close it out and in spectacular fashion as well. Always nice to see the whole team going crazy and celebrating.
    Pospisil looks injured though, that's not so nice:(

    That looked like it might have been a double bounce. I want to see a replay. But with Pospisil's fall I don't think he could have kept playing anyway.

    I think they may have called for a stretcher. What a nasty way to end the match

    Canadians should feel good. They fought hard and gave it all.

    If was a great tie.

    one lesson learned from this Canada-Serbia tie.

    Tipsy is mentally weak as ever and he will not play well in 2014 that's for sure.

    He had everything set up for him and even had match points (even in raonic match) and somehow play loose and managed to lose them. Even though he won this one, his performance is not very impressive considering the atmosphere and all easy shots he was given.

    Tipsy stopped the celebration and went to the other side to check if Pospisil is OK and shake hands.

    Yeah I saw it. I didn't mean "not so nice" as in "not nice of Tipsy". I meant that it's not a nice way to end the match.

    Canadian captain Martin Laurendeau giving an emotional interview. You can tell he's so proud of what his team accomplished this year.

    Vasek looks to be in great pain. I hope it doesn't affect the rest of the year.

    Thanks. I do feel good. While I feel sad that it's over and Canada didn't have one more surprise up their sleeve, I'm not necessarily disappointed either. The Canadians gave it their absolute best against a more talented Serbia team and that's all I could ever ask for.

    Serbia was just straight up the better team in these last two singles matches and they deserve full credit for the win. I'll be rooting for them against the Czechs!

    It was never in doubt, the only thing to be decided was by how much.

    Nooooo. They can't know that already, they need MRI to confirm and I think he would be in much more pain if the snapped a ligament.

    It would be really sad if that happened.

    Nice job with two straight victories.
    Novak is so strong in Davis Cup, i cant see him losing a match in a final in front of a home crowd. Its such a privilege to have him.

    The Sportsnet newscaster said he snapped something, Pospisil himself said he "heard it snap"; the coach said he thinks it snapped, etc etc

    Serbia will win pretty easily the final.

    2 wins from Djokovic and then you have to catch one more point, Zimonjic & Bozoljac can do it, if Tipsarevic doesn't...

    I'm pretty sure they will chose clay for the final so Radek Stepanek got no chance to win a match. Last year he pushed Tipsarevic very hard on clay but don't think he'll be able to do the same in Serbia. Rosol level is too weak to win a match also.

    let's slow down until official diagnosis, obviously there's pain...sometimes they have to wait for swelling to go down to do imaging clearly
