    In the second game of the German group opponents in the intermediate round of the Davis Cup, the Australians defeated France and thus extended their lead in the table.

    After the opening success against the Belgian tennis team two days earlier, the Australians clinched their second win in the group finals at Rothenbaum thanks to the Matthew Ebden/Max Purcell doubles match. This year’s Wimbledon winners defeated Nicolas Mahut/Arthur Rinderknech 6:4, 6:4.

    Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi followed up earlier in the second singles of the day after a weak first set and forced Alex de Minaur to a third set. There, the Australian kept his nerve despite being behind, won 6:3, 1:6, 6:4 and thus equalized. Previously, the world number 79 defeated. Richard Gasquet easily beat Davis Cup newcomer Jason Kubler 6:2, 6:4 and gave the French the lead in the first match.

    The day before, France had already lost 2-1 to the German team after the successes of Jan-Lennard Struff in singles and Tim Pütz/Kevin Krawietz in doubles. Before the duel between the German team and Belgium, the Australians are leading the table, followed by the Germans.
