Paris - France have selected Roland Garros - the home of the French Open - as the venue for their Davis Cup semi-final tie against the Czech Republic in September.

The French tennis federation says it opted for the 15 000-capacity centre court in Paris after team captain Arnaud Clement asked for the best-of-five series on September 12-14 to be played on outdoor clay.

Built in 1928 for the Davis Cup final between France and the United States, Roland Garros has hosted several Davis Cup matches, the last one in 2002.

The Czechs are bidding for a third consecutive Davis Cup title. This will be the 15th time the two teams have met, with each country winning seven times.

Switzerland host Italy in the other semi-final tie.
