Amélie Mauresmo has withdrawn from planning to succeed Yannick Noah as French Davis Cup captain next year and will instead coach countryman Lucas Pouille. Pouille will become the second male player to be coached by her after Andy Murray whom she coached for two years from 2014-16.4
:eek::cool:

Been on the cards for the best part of three years I reckon, just needed the right time/circumstances to make it happen.

Having to quit the Pique Cup captaincy is ridiculous though. What a bunch of divas not being able to handle the captain coaching one of their own. I see Tsonga had no such qualms about employing the Spanish captain...

Actually it makes perfect sense.

Momo avoids a conflict of interest that would otherwise exist in her job as DC captain if she'd been French captain AND a coach of one of the players she'd potentially select.

I get that, but Pouille has repeatedly - and categorically - said he won’t play in the new format.
