MALAGA: Jannik Sinner completed a perfect week by sealing Italy’s first Davis Cup title for nearly 50 years as he thrashed Australia’s Alex De Minaur to complete his team’s 2-0 victory.

Italy’s No1 produced a devastating display to outclass a helpless De Minaur 6-3 6-0 after Matteo Arnaldi outlasted Alexei Popyrin in the first singles clash.

Sinner, the world number four, ended the week with five wins out of five, including a heroic performance in Saturday’s semi-final when he beat Novak Djokovic
