GHENT, Belgium (AP) David Goffin came back from two sets down for the first time in his career to give Belgium a 1-0 lead over Britain in the Davis Cup final with a 3-6, 1-6, 6-2, 6-1, 6-0 win over Kyle Edmund on Friday.

Edmund came close to making his Davis Cup debut a memorable one after rolling through the first two sets against the much higher ranked Belgian. But Goffin stepped up his game as the 20-year-old Edmund started making mistakes.

Goffin is No. 16 in the world and had not lost a set in four previous Davis Cup matches this year in leading Belgium to the final. Edmund is ranked No. 100 and had not played in the Davis Cup until Friday.
