Over 10,000 fans greeted Swizerland’s victorious Davis Cup team in Lausanne on Monday as they celebrated their first Davis Cup triumph.
Roger Federer beat Richard Gasquet in straight sets to clinch the Swiss’s first-ever title on Sunday.
The mobile phone network crashed due to the sheer number of fans as the celebrations continued in Wawrinka’s home-town.
Speaking after the final win, Federer said: “At the end it’s a tennis match. You feel great emotions. You’re unbelievably happy and relieved.
“We wanted this clearly very badly, especially being up 2-1. You inch yourself closer and closer. Clearly seeing Stan [Wawrinka] out there, the rest of the team supporting you, you push extra.”
