France completed a 5-0 whitewash of Argentina on Sunday, a day after Michaël Llodra and Arnaud Clément (pictured) clinched the third and decisive point in the doubles to hand the French squad a place in the Davis Cup final.

 
REUTERS - Gilles Simon beat Eduardo Schwank and Arnaud Clement saw off Horacio Zeballos as France completed a 5-0 rout of Argentina in their Davis Cup semi-final on Sunday.
 
After the home side opened up an unbeatable 3-0 lead on Saturday, nothing was at stake in Sunday's reverse singles except pride.

Substitute Simon beat doubles specialist Schwank 7-6 6-7 6-3 while Clement, who with Michael Llodra gave France the decisive third point in Saturday's doubles, recovered from a break down in the opening set to prevail 7-5 6-1 against Zeballos.

France, who beat holders Spain 5-0 in the previous round, will face either Serbia away or the Czech Republic at home in the Dec. 3-5 final.

In Belgrade, Serbia were tied 2-2 with the Czechs after Novak Djokovic beat Tomas Berdych in Sunday's fourth rubber.
