The Gauls obtain their first point (2-1) in the semifinals of the Glass Davis. The Tsonga-Llodra pair gave an authentic beating to the Spaniards: 6-1, 6-2 and 6-0. A victory of Nadal or east Ferrer Sunday would give happens to Spain to the end. France, with the inspiration of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Michael Llodra, shortened to differences in the semifinal of Glass Davis against Spain in Cordova when winning to Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco, by 6-1, 6-2 and 6-0, and gaining the first point of the duel that dominates the Spanish set by 2-1. The French players dominated of principle to aim the Spaniards, and they only prevailed in 99 minutes. Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco disputed his twelfth party in Davis, but its greater experience before the French (only two until today) vanished before the forcefulness of the Gallic set, and fitted the fifth defeat, most forceful since they began together in February of the 2006 against Belarus in Minsk, where they received his unique defeat until today in three sets, against Max Mirnyi and Vladimir Voltchkov.

With this victory, France still maintains its hopes to give the return the eliminatory one, something that already have obtained in three occasions when they had yielded by 2-0 in the first day. The last one was against Italy in 1996, in semifinals. This Sunday the predicted order is Rafael Nadal-Gilles Simon, from the 12:00 hours, and next, David Ferrer-Richard Gasquet, but one hour before the captains can make changes, something that seem than probable more, and Guy Forget, captain of the Gallic equipment, could place the hero of the doubles, Tsonga, in either encounter.
