Preview – The Davis Cup: France v Great Britain


It is the quarter finals of tennis’s Davis Cup, and for this round the Brits are going to Rouen for three days on the clay courts of Kindarena.

However, the Brits may well have it tough this time around because Andy Murray is currently out injured. Therefore it has to fall to Britain’s No. 2, and the world No. 44 Dan Evans to lead the way, along with Kyle Edmund and Andy’s brother Jamie, who is taking part in the doubles with Dom Inglot.

On the other side though, the French also have injuries too. The French No. 1 and world No. 10 Jo-Wilfred Tsonga is also out, along with Gael Monfils, Richard Gasquet and Gilles Simon. Thus the French team consists of Jeremy Chardy, Lucas Pouille, Nicholas Mahut and Julien Benneteau. The winners will face either Spain or Serbia.

The Davis Cup: France v Great Britain is on Friday at 13.00 on BBC Two. It is on Saturday at 13.10 on BBC One and 16.30 on BBC Two. The tournament concludes on Sunday at 13.00 on BBC Two.
