31 Jan - 02 Feb 2014, Vendéspace, La Roche sur Yon, France, Clay, Indoor
A world class French team produced some fabulous tennis to defeat Australia and progress to the quarterfinals for a fifth consecutive year.
Ranked ninth and tenth in the world respectively, Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga were always certain to be tough opponents for the Australian team to face. And so it proved, with neither Nick Kyrgios nor Lleyton Hewitt able to win a set on the first day of play, leaving France on the brink of victory. Gasquet and Tsonga teamed up to defeat Hewitt and Chris Guccione in four sets in Saturday's doubles, before Julien Benneteau and Gael Monfils completed the rout with emphatic singles wins on Sunday.
