France sack Davis Cup captain Arnaud Clement

The French Tennis Federation (FFT) has sacked Arnaud Clement from his role as Davis Cup captain.

Clement had been in the role for three years since retiring as a player and led France to the final in 2014, beaten 3-1 by Switzerland.

There was no repeat of that run in 2015, as France were knocked out by Great Britain in the quarter-finals.

The FFT subsequently announced Clement’s dismissal on Twitter, with reports suggesting that team disunity was behind the decision.

Former captain Yannick Noah – who led the team to glory in 1991 – is being tipped as a successor.
