Germany shrugged off the absence of their top six players to take a shock 2-0 lead over France in their Davis Cup quarter-final on Friday.

Julien Benneteau slumped to a 7-6 (10/8), 6-3, 6-2 loss to world number 96 Tobias Kamke in the day's opening rubber.

Then world number 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga squandered a match point to lose 5-7, 7-6 (7/3), 3-6, 7-6 (10/8), 8-6 to Peter Gojowczyk, the world 119.

The eventual winners of the tie will face either defending champions Czech Republic or Japan in the semi-finals.
