Paris- Yannick Noah, the last Frenchman to win a Grand Slam tournament, has been appointed as the new France Davis Cup captain.
Noah replaces Arnaud Clement, who was fired last week following a disappointing campaign and growing tension between him and the players.
Noah, who has reinvented himself into a successful singer, captained France to the 1991 and 1996 Davis Cup titles. He also won the French Open in 1983.
The French tennis federation says he will be in charge of the Davis Cup "for the 2016 campaign."
