Sebastien Grosjean has been named captain of France’s Davis Cup team following Amelie Mauresmo’s decision not to take up the post.
Mauresmo was initially set to become the first woman to captain the country’s Davis Cup team, but the two-time Grand Slam winner made a U-turn and instead accepted a position to become Lucas Pouille’s new coach.
France, though, have moved on quickly and named former world No 4 Grosjean as the man who will officially replace Yannick Noah, who stepped down from the post after this year’s final.
“It’s a great pride to be named captain of the France Davis Cup team because I’ve always been very attached to this event, and this post, which now has an Olympic dimension. It promises to be exciting,” the four-time ATP Tour singles title winner said.
“I would like to thank Pierre Cherret and the Executive Committee of the FFT (French tennis federation) for the trust they place in me, and I am going to work now to take up this magnificent challenge.”
