BELGRADE, SERBIA (AP) - Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Viktor Troicki 3-6, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 Saturday to give France a 2-1 lead against Serbia in their Davis Cup final.

Clement lost his serve in both sets that the French lost. But the 32-year-old veteran’s spectacular lob that landed on the baseline triggered a crucial break in the 11th game of the fourth set.

Zimonjic then lost his serve in the opening game of the fifth set, and the French wrapped up their comeback win after 4 hours, 34 minutes.
