This year's David Cup win marked the 32nd Davis Cup title win for the United States. The last win for the USA also was against Russia in 1995. The Byran twins have won five career grand slam titles and secured the win today in just under two hours.

"We will remember this for the rest of our lives," Mike Bryan said after the match. "It's difficult to explain how we feel right now."

Yesterday in singles play Andy Roddick and James Blake both won their singles matches to hand the USA a 2-0 lead versus the Russian team. "This is one of our greatest moments," Roddick said. "To be here and to bring the Cup back to the States is just an amazing feeling. But more importantly, just to share the journey with these guys, it's been so much fun."

The USA had not won the first three matches of a Davis Cup final since 1990 against Australia. As the 2007 title has been decided, Sunday's reverse singles matches at Memorial Coliseum will be shortened to the best of three sets.
