Andre Agassi and John McEnroe scored straight-set victories Sunday to complete a United States sweep over France in the Davis Cup quarterfinals.
Agassi beat Yannick Noah 6-3, 7-6 (9-7) and McEnroe downed Henri Leconte 6-3, 6-1 to give the United States a 5-0 victory.The victory moved the United States into the semifinals against defending champion West Germany, which beat Czechoslovakia 3-2. West Germany will host the semifinal series in Dortmund July 21-23.
"When we're on, we're very, very tough," said McEnroe, who helped the United States win its last Davis Cup in 1982. "We came out and produced. There hasn't been a team feeling like this the last six years."
U.S. captain Tom Gorman said he expected a tougher series from the French, who won only two sets in the five matches.
"The end result doesn't surprise me, but I thought there would be closer matches," Gorman said.
