Tsonga downs Darcis to level for France

Tsonga downs Darcis to level for France
Published by , Friday 11/24/17 22:00

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga pulled France level at 1-1 in the Davis Cup final with an assured three-set win over Belgium's Steve Darcis in Lille. David Goffin had mercilessly swept aside close friend Lucas Pouille to give outsiders Belgium the first point at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. But world number 15 Tsonga steadied home nerves in the second rubber of the opening day with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 success over 76th-ranked Darcis to boost France's hopes of claiming the trophy for the first time since 2001. Tsonga said: "Whether it's us or the Belgians our mission is to bring home the salad bowl (trophy), that's the only thing that counts. If I could push the ball on with my teeth, I'd do it!"
