Davis Cup, France vs Czech Republic, 1st day.
Roland-Garros, Paris, France.
Richard Gasquet vs Tomas Berdych
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Lukas Rosol
Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga put France in command of its semifinal against Czech Republic on Friday, both scoring straight-sets victories to put the hosts within striking distance of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Final.
Perhaps inspired by all the Davis Cup history resonating around Roland Garros’s Court Philippe Chatrier, Gasquet overwhelmed Tomas Berdych 6-3 6-2 6-3 and Tsonga defeated Lukas Rosol by a near-identical score, 6-2 6-2 6-3.
