It's not cockiness. We are very confident that we can compete with anybody. One thing is clear: defense got put on the backburner between the Warriors and Rockets Thursday night.

Bryant's 56-yard catch in the first half set up Ezekiel Elliott's one-yard plunge.

The hug, the handshakes and a word of congratulation, eventually came on the podium.

If I care, I am nervous. "Not being able to get out of bed, not being able to move, how can I expect to come out here and swing a golf club at 120 miles an hour and be ballistic when I can't even get out of bed".

It is the seventh time in Davis Cup history that a country has come from 2-1 down in the final to become champions. Cilic lost control of the match in the middle of the third set when he failed to convert two break points.

Murray added the title to the Wimbledon crown and Rio Olympics gold he won during a stunning summer and, despite Djokovic's Australian Open and French Open titles, there can be little argument the Scot is now the world's best player.
