Richard has been beaten by Nicola Davydenko to take the Russia v France Davis Cup tie to a fifth and deciding rubber. The Russian number one won in four sets, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.

In front of a very animated crowd which included Russian leader Boris Yeltsin and also a noisy French contingent, Richard played with great spirit but on the day it was not enough to beat the confident Davydenko.

Richard was unable to take break points at the start of the first set and was then broken twice as the Russian got off to a fast start. He fought back superbly coming from a break down to win the second set and level the match but then lost the next two sets.

The tie will now be decided by the fifth rubber in which Frenchman Mathieu will play either Andreev or Youzny.
