Noah gamble pays off as France lead Belgium 2-1

Noah gamble pays off as France lead Belgium 2-1
Published by , Saturday 11/25/17 18:48

France captain Yannick Noah's gamble in pairing Richard Gasquet and Pierre-Hugues Herbert together for the first time paid off as the duo gave France a 2-1 lead over Belgium in the Davis Cup final. Gasquet and Herbert defeated Ruben Bemelmans and Joris de Loore 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 to leave the hosts requiring just one point from Sunday's closing two singles. Belgium's hopes of claiming a first title in the venerable competition now rest with their in-form number one David Goffin denying Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Sunday's opening singles. If Goffin keeps the tie alive it will then go down to the fifth and closing rubber between Lucas Pouille and Belgium's Davis Cup specialist Steve Darcis.
