By Compiled From Wire Services

Lindsay Davenport recovered from a blown lead to take a 7-6, 7-5 victory over Julie Halard, helping the second-seeded United States tie fourth-seeded France in their Fed Cup semifinal match. In the opening match, France’s Mary Pierce beat Mary Joe Fernandez 7-6 (7-1), 6-3.

The split sets up a best-of-three showdown today for the chance to meet either Spain or Germany in the championship round. Pierce faces Davenport and Halard meets Fernandez. In doubles, Halard and Tauziat play Davenport and Gigi Fernandez.
