LILLE, France (AP) David Goffin gave Belgium a 1-0 lead over France in the Davis Cup final by beating Lucas Pouille 7-5, 6-3, 6-1 Friday.

With his confidence boosted by a runner-up finish at the ATP Finals last week, the seventh-ranked Goffin played offensive tennis and was in control throughout. He hit 21 winners and 12 aces and did not face a single break point.

France's top player, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, will face Steve Darcis in the second singles match later Friday on the indoor hard court at the Pierre Mauroy Stadium.
