David Goffin will be the leader of the Belgian team in the attempt to try to win the first Davis Cup title in history after losing 2015 and 1904 finals. The World No. 7 is coming from the long run at the Year-End event in London where he lost to Grigor Dimitrov in the final, but he is ready to give it all.

In press conference ahead of the final against France in Lille, Goffin, who won 19 Davis Cup singles rubbers on 22 played throughout his career, said: 'It would be really nice to finish the year like that. It’s such a nice event, really important for us, for the country, for Belgium.

It would be incredible to go back home with the trophy but like Johan (Van Herck) says, we are not the favourite. We have almost nothing to lose here. We are in France, the stadium will be against us so we have to give everything for the last event of the year.

Of course it will be unbelievable for everybody, for the country, to win the trophy.' He also commented on his knee condition: 'Everything is going well, I took confidence with my knee. It's true that knee clearly needs rest after the Masters final on Sunday, but it's okay.

I won't have any problem to play 110% during the whole weekend. I am not worried because in the last weeks there was much intensity and great matches.' ALSO READ: Yannick Noah: 'David Goffin's run in London was fantastic' .
