  1. Goodbye!

    France 3-0 GB

    Congratulations to France - they've reached the Davis Cup semi-finals with an unassailable 3-0 victory in Rouen.

    There will still be some tennis tomorrow, with Dan Evans taking on Lucas Pouille and Kyle Edmund playing Jeremy Chardy, but those matches will be best of three, rather than five.

    Thanks a lot for your company over the last two days - we'll see you later.

  2. 'Without Andy, GB will struggle'

    France 3-0 GB

    John Lloyd

    Former GB Davis Cup captain on BBC Two

    You put Andy Murray into the equation and the odds are you win two singles and possibly the match.

    GB are without their best player. Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans fought well at times but there is still a way to go, particularly for Dan Evans.

    Our doubles team is a word class side but France were better. The bottom line is now, we're a world group team - without Andy, against the top teams, GB will struggle.

  3. 'We want to bring trophy to France'

    France 3-0 GB

    France's victorious doubles pair of Nicolas Mahut and Julien Benneteau have been speaking to BBC Sport's Jamie Baker.

    Julien Benneteau:  "We did not have a lot of opportunities to break them. We waited for it. We still believed in the comeback and the way we found the key to return well. 

    "Sine we had opportunities to break I think it was a different game. Doubles in the Davis Cup, even on clay, was a different game.

    Nicolas Mahut: "We haven't won this competition since 2001. We are still competing without big names. It's my first time to play at home and it was a great tie. We wish to play the final and bring back the trophy to France."

  4. Post update

    France 3-0 GB

    GB had moments in that doubles match, particularly that first set tie-break, but like Kyle Edmund yesterday, they couldn't grab those key points.

    They were also up against a pair who have been playing with one another since they were 11, and winning silverware since 1999. It was a genuinely entertaining battle, but that's GB's Davis Cup over this year.

  5. 'France played the best on big points'

    France 3-0 GB

    John Lloyd

    Former GB Davis Cup captain on BBC Two

    Great Britain had their chances. It was a fantastic doubles match but the French team played best on the big points,

    Nicolas Mahut in particular was absolutely magnificent today.

    He had that air about him that he was going to win the match at whatever cost.

    Jamie Murray was superb throughout today and hardly missed a volley.

  6. France take unassailable 3-0 lead

  7. Post update

    France 3-0 Great Britain. That's the overall story.

    A wonderful doubles match, Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot played wonderfully in that doubles match, but they were up against a formidable pair. Nicolas Mahut in particular was wonderful.

  8. France reach Davis Cup semi-finals

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 7-5 GB

    France captain Yannick Noah is running around all over the place. It's a brilliant moment for them, and they're loving every moment.

    It's more subdued on the GB bench, but they can be proud of that performance. An utterly enthralling doubles match.

  9. Game, set and match to France

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 7-5 GB

    And that's it! France go long to bring up the advantage, before GB get up to the net again. Back and forth, and then Jamie Murray spoons the ball into the net - France are into the Davis Cup semi-final!

  10. GB save first match point

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 6-5 GB*

    France are just two points away from the match - and Nicolas Mahut brings up one of them with a beautiful shovel down the line! Glorious placement - and that's match point!

    Jamie Murray takes his time, and he and Inglot are up to the net. Fast, furious hitting from all four players - and GB will save the match point!

  11. Deuce

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 6-5 GB*

    Mahut is pumped up as he draws the points level on 15-15 with a ferocious backhand. There's some lovely work at the net though from Jamie Murray, tiptoeing forward to meet the volleys.

    Good work from the Brits, dealing with everything France fire their way, but Benneteau and Mahut are dancing around the baseline. It's deuce!

  12. Post update

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 6-5 GB*

    A Mexican wave ripples around the court as Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot make their way back on court. The Brits are serving again to stay in this Davis Cup tie.

  13. Post update

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 6-5 GB*

    France take an early point before Benneteau floats his backhand into the net. 

    A cracking return from Jamie Murray, a low punch that Benneteau sends wide, but the Frenchman responds with a fine, fierce body serve. In fact he repeats that body serve three times - and it comes off perfectly every time. France hold.

    *France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 5-5 GB

    Speedy from GB to hold their serve - five games all after half-an-hour. Dan Evans puts his head in his hands as he watches on.

  15. What a shot!

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 5-4 GB*

    Nicolas Mahut has just played a shot from outside the advertising hoardings! Wow! 

    Dominic Inglot battered in his serve, Mahut was chasing and went over the boards as he returned, then ended up almost in the stands as he returned the shot. Ridiculously good effort.

  16. Post update

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 5-4 GB

    Quiet talks for both sets of players, but this is it. Dom Inglot and Jamie Murray are serving to keep GB in the Davis Cup. France are a game away.

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 5-4 GB*

    Oops. Jamie Murray goes for the big forehand but the ball plinks off the bottom of the racquet and ends up flying into the crowd. Another aggressive service game from Nicolas Mahut as he holds to love.

  18. Post update

    *France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 4-4 GB

    Jamie Murray with a lovely dink shot at the net. It looked an awkward return but the French duo were nowhere near it. Whatever works.

    Great Britain are playing this game very tight to the net and it's working. Nicolas Mahut sends a relatively simple return wide.

    And Jamie Murray has settled back down now. He serves out the game as GB level things up in the third set.

  19. Post update

    France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 4-3 GB*

    Great Britain are battling hard out there but Julian Benneteau's service game is too strong and he fires another ace down court to wrap up the game.

    And France are now within just two games of seeing out this tie.

    Julian Benneteau celebrates
  20. Post update

    *France 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 7-5 3-3 GB

    A grunt of frustration from Nicolas Mahut as he twice gives his backhand too much dip and it only finds the bottom of the net.

    Everyone is looking weary now - apart from the fabulous band in the stands - and Mahut nets yet again as GB hold.
