ROCHE-SUR-YON, France -- Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Richard Gasquet beat Lleyton Hewitt and Chris Guccione 5-7, 7-6 (4), 6-2, 7-5 to give France an unassailable 3-0 lead over Australia and a spot in the Davis Cup quarterfinals on Saturday. Dorian Johnson Youth Jersey
. Hewitt and Guccione were previously undefeated in the Davis Cup as a doubles team, but Tsonga and Gasquet overpowered them by hitting 21 aces to 4, and 74 winners to 38. The Australians rallied from a 3-0 deficit and won the opening set when Hewitt hit a return winner off Gasquets serve. However, Guccione failed to serve out the second set at 5-3 as the match turned in Frances favour. "If we could have gone up two sets to love, it could have been a different story," Hewitt said. In the tiebreaker, the French team jumped to a 6-3 lead after Guccione netted a backhand volley and Tsonga slapped a forehand winner. Tsonga fired an ace to level at one set apiece. The French pair did not face any break points in the third and fourth sets. The hosts went a set up when Gasquet whipped a forehand pass down the middle and won the match when Gasquet hit a powerful backhand that Hewitt could not return. "Its a feeling of accomplishment," Tsonga said. "We played three good matches. We played unbelievable again today." On Friday, Tsonga cruised past Hewitt 6-3, 6-2, 7-6 (2), and Gasquet routed Nick Kyrgios 7-6 (3), 6-2, 6-2. France will face Germany in the quarterfinals while Australia will compete in the playoffs to stay in the World Group. Chad Williams Womens Jersey

. -- Jimmie Johnson has a sixth NASCAR championship in hand and two legends within reach.I went for a pretty beautiful walk since the weather was so nice and warm...this sunset heading westbound on the Danforth was pretty spectacular. Many already know this but I am a sucker for a sunset… I have a file with sunsets from around the world from wherever I visit. It is truly the most magical and inspirational thing in the world.I had to head to S. R. O. management to sign off on a couple contractual things… Said hello to everyone, and grab a few extra cases of merch items as we are running out of CDs already on the road. Finally, back at the hotel I realized that my wife wanted me to go to this particular suit store where she had recently purchased me a couple new suits… She wanted to make sure that she purchased the right size so that when I get home I could have the pants hemmed properly and be ready to go for the holidays. That was truly the most boring part of my day… Sorry honey.Back at the hotel for the night and not doing anything at all… Im exhausted from lack of sleep and my bodys a little strained from the shows...this is going to be an early night. Getting up early for a 9 AM bus departure to head for Hamilton. This show should be pretty insane tonight, Im looking forward to seeing what our old lighting designer is able to do with the excessive amount of lights that are being brought in for these larger shows.Ill check back tomorrow mid-day after Stuart and I complete our press obligations. Have yourself an amazing day and remember, you are always better than you think you are!Follow me on Twitter here: @burrowsdrumsL.A.M.F.JBThursday, November 27Once again, we hit the ground running once we got to Hamilton. Todays a show day but we have a few press obligations which we are more than willing to participate in! Our first stop is Y108FM. We performed The Black Sea acoustically...and Im loving the new spin Jeff puts on this…Next we headed over to the art gallery of Hamilton. JunoTV wanted us to do a segment on a current Canadian art piece. We chose this! Beyond doing a segment on this particular piece which is pretty nuts by the way, we got to stroll around and check out many paintings… Most particularly eye catching was the Paul Cézannes that were available… So beautiful - I love postimpressionism.Once we were done these bits… We headed back to the Hamilton place theatre to check out the guys setting everything up. For the next three shows we have brought in our old lighting designer Steve, who is fresh off the road with Dream Theatre. Once I was set up as per usual, we did our sound check, the VIP meet and greets, and some final preparations before the stage goes dark.We were all pretty amped for the show, its the hammer after all, and they are always a lively and rowdy bunch! What a beautiful theatre it is especially seeing everyone singing back to you at certain moments in the set. After sound check I headed back to the bus to grab a brief 20 minute nap to recharge my batteries. Lots of friends coming by tonight so Im pretty excited - I also get to send a bunch of stuff home since my brother-in-law Steve showed up for the gig… This will make my luggage a lot less cumbersome to take out west. What a show! A couple friends brought us very nice gifts… A mounted photo of each of us with the CD underneath commemorating the tour&… Thank you Dave and Karen!That was a pretty amazing show! The band is now in mid tour shape and are churning out the songs like a well oiled speed car. Budda Baker Jersey
. I love it when you can get into those moments where you are no longer thinking about what you are doing and just pouring nothing but passion into the new songs… Its a heightened sense of euphoria!After a quick shower, we headed to the green room for a meet and greet with old friends, old label representatives, and family… Always nice to catch up, always nice to get photos with old friends. We had to hop back onto the bus and head to Toronto, where we would get only about 3 1/2 hours sleep before morning television the next day.Wednesday is a massive press day. Stuart and I started our day at CP24 for an interview on live television… I gotta tell ya, Im normally a morning person but I only ended up with two hours sleep and the bags under my eyes show it well! LOL .@CP24Breakfast Talking @theteapartyband show at #Koolhaus tomorrow night! Get tickets here http://t.co/hfHfaAJYnN
pic.twitter.com/wFqM3s6Hul — Jeff Burrows (@Burrowsdrums) November 26, 2014Next we headed back to the hotel for some phone interviews, I was a bit nervous as often I am the one to handle the French segments, and this one was with the CBC in Alberta, and I heard this gentleman it was quite a stickler for good communication. I was so tired I wasnt sure if Id be able to pull it off… But he turned out to be very kind and very respectful of my "Franglais"...Merci Michael!Next, the band met in the lobby to be picked up by a driver with management and our publicist. First stop as a band would be the National Post. Here we performed for there video portion, then had a lengthy interview that would hit the papers after the Toronto show… Very nice.Next we were off to lunch where we could eat and to do more phone interviews while we waited for some live interviews to make their way to the restaurant. We each did around 3 for an hour and a half, until our dear friend Karen Bliss showed up for a one on one with the band. This woman, is easily the best entertainment journalist in Canada… She was also a true Tea Party champion as early as 1991! What can I say… Shes got great taste!
Once we were done at the restaurant, we headed to SIRIUS XM for another performance and interview with Eric Alper...another giant in the industry who has his hands in all parts of the business. This portion wrapped up our press part of the day so we headed back to the hotel.For dinner, we met with our longtime friend, agent and president of the Feldman Agency, Jeff Craib. We chatted about upcoming opportunities for the band and enjoyed some fine wine and outstanding steaks… But I have to tell you I was completely exhausted by the time it was over. What a long day! Im doing this journal entry from my bed on the day of the Toronto show… Contemplating whether or not I should go for my morning run.Well, thats it… I have to get off my ass and get my heart rate up... Ill check back in with you guys tomorrow once Im in Montreal and Ill let you know how the Toronto show went. Stay positive and be good to yourselves my friends!Follow me on Twitter: @burrowsdrumsL.A.M.F.JBAnd here are some pictures from the Art Gallery of Hamilton.
