They were opponents in the Davis Cup final, but David Goffin and Lucas Pouille didn't let that interfere with their plans to vacation together during the offseason.

The pair and their girlfriends had planned a trip before finding themselves on opposing sides in the team competition. Goffin won his meeting with Pouille in the first day's singles, but Pouille won the fifth singles to capture the Davis Cup for France.

"He hasn't sent me a message yet calling off the vacation," Pouille told press following the final.

And it looked like the plans were still on, as Goffin joined some of the French team for their victory party that night.

Goffin has been on a tear, defeating Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to reach the ATP Tour Finals, and winning both his singles in Davis Cup competition.
