  2. 'A masterclass from Chardy'

    France 2-0 GB

    John Lloyd

    Former GB Davis Cup captain on BBC Two

    It was a masterclass from Jeremy Chardy, with the way he played Dan Evans.

    Evans is used to the faster courts where he has the pace. Here on clay his shots just sit up and Chardy had plenty of time.

    Chardy's level never dropped at all, from the moment he came out on the court. He was aggressive and there was no lapse in concentration. I thought he played a tremendous match.

  3. 'Easy to choose Chardy'

    France 2-0 GB

    France captain Yannick Noah speaking on BBC TV:  "Jeremy is playing well on clay. If the match had been a few weeks later, it would have been a different situation. All the players had one week to get ready for the tie.

    "Jeremy played very well every day in practice and it was easy for me to choose him.

    "The doubles is a key battle and then we have Sunday if we need it."

  4. Post update

    France 2-0 GB

    France captain Yannick Noah's decision to play Jeremy Chardy instead of Gilles Simon looks like an inspired bit of captaincy. Chardy looked in superb touch.

  5. 'It's an amazing moment'

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 6-3 Evans

    France's Jeremy Chardy speaking to BBC Two: "I was really happy. For me it's an amazing moment. Last year was really difficult so I'm just enjoying it.

    "We have a really good doubles team and so do they, but i think we can win. We are just going to stay focused."

  6. We'll have to do it the difficult way'

    France 2-0 GB

    Leon Smith

    Great Britain captain Leon Smith speaking on BBC Two:  "Obviously Kyle Edmund started well but Lucas Pouille did a good job in getting back into the first set.

    "Second set, I thought Edmund did well to get the lead in the tie-break and could have played slightly more aggressively. He then got disheartened in the third set.

    "Dan fights with everything he's got. He loves playing for his country. But he needs more time on the clay. Jeremy Chardy was too good for him today.

    "We probably needed the win from Kyle to get us started this weekend. And we will now have to do it the extremely difficult way."

  7. 'A brave decision by France'

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 6-3 Evans

    John Lloyd

    Former GB Davis Cup captain on BBC Two

    I thought Chardy was fabulous and he is going to move up the rankings if he keeps playing like that.

    It was a brave decision by Yannick Noah. He knew something about Chardy; he liked his attitude, his confidence, his game.

    It was difficult to see how Dan could hurt him, even if they'd been out there all day.

  8. Post update

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 6-3 Evans

    GB haven't been whitewashed in the Davis Cup since 2009.

    There's a lot riding on tomorrow, when Jamie Murray and Dominic Inglot face Julien Benneteau and Nicolas Mahut in the doubles.

  9. Post update

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 6-3 Evans

    France haven't dropped a set on the first day. Clay was always going to be a struggle for GB but Chardy looked in complete control against Evans, who couldn't really find his footing. The Brits have got a real fight on their hands to overturn this 2-0 deficit. 

  10. Post update

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 6-3 Evans

    That was Jeremy Chardy's first Davis Cup appearance in six years, and yet he's managed to maintain his 100% record. A fantastic performance from Chardy; he never really looked troubled and he's helped put his team intro a great position.

  11. Game, set and match to France

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 6-3 Evans

    Evans saves the first match point as Chardy overworks his forehand, but there's no saving the second!

    The French crowd are on their feet and there's a huge smile on Jeremy Chardy's face. A magnificent performance, and France will take a 2-0 lead after the first day.

  12. Post update

    *Chardy 6-2 6-3 5-3 Evans

    Have that. Gorgeous, two-handed backhand from Chardy beats Evans, before the Brit comes dancing forwards and can only find the net.

    Evans claws it back to 15-30 but a battered, high forehand puts Chardy in front once again. Two match points...

  13. Evans' clay struggles continue

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 5-3 Evans*

    Dan Evans' forehand, so consistent on the hard court, has struggled so far today on the clay surface.

    Jeremy Chardy has struck 24 forehand winners compared to just 13 from Dan Evans.

    The Frenchman also has a 78 percent win percentage on his first serve with Dan Evans only at 56 percent.

    Now then. Chardy's service game goes haywire - he's looking for the big winner but twice his forehands go flying out. It's 30-30 for the first time since the first set.

    That's sublime though from Chardy, a beautiful, low volley that Evans can't meet, and an overhit from the Brit means Chardy holds. He's a game away from giving France a 2-0 lead.

  15. Post update

    *Chardy 6-2 6-3 4-3 Evans

    A penny for Leon Smith's thoughts - there's a low-five for Evans, before Smith talks tactics with him.

  16. Post update

    *Chardy 6-2 6-3 4-3 Evans

    Evans wrong-foots Chardy with a slice serve, before Chardy comes darting forward to power a forehand past Evans. Evans is so deep behind the baseline; it's been far too easy for Chardy to come forward and slice those winners past him. Evans will hold for the second service game in a row, though.

  17. Post update

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 4-2 Evans*

    Ooft! Both players go aerial, exchanging big hits, before Chardy slaps a forehand winner beyond his opponent. Chardy fires through his service game for another simple hold.

  18. Evans saves three break points

    *Chardy 6-2 6-3 3-2 Evans

    Advantage Evans, as Chardy's backhand fails to clear the net again, and Evans holds his serve as another spicy serve meets Chardy's forehand and hits the net.

    Evans was 0-40 down there, but he clawed his way back into it - and there's a big roar from the Brit as he walks back to his seat.

  19. Deuce

    *Chardy 6-2 6-3 3-1 Evans

    Superb from Chardy, meeting Evans drop shot with a fiercely-hammered forehand that initially has Evans moving in the wrong direction. This has been a dominant performance from the Frenchman, although he makes a mess of a big overhead shot that Evans has to duck to avoid.

    In fact, that's deuce, as Chardy floats his backhand into the net - Evans has saved two break points there.

  20. Post update

    Chardy 6-2 6-3 3-1 Evans*

    A shake of the head and thump of the racquet from Evans, who is furiously chuntering away to himself. He gets on the board with a fine, fiery forehand that Chardy sends sidewards from the top of the racquet. It's an error-strewn game from Evans though, just sending the ball harmlessly sailing out time after time.
