Tsonga, Pouille to lead France in Davis Cup Semi

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Lucas Pouille will lead France in their Davis Cup semi-final against Serbia.

French captain Yannick Noah selected the 12th-ranked Tsonga and No.20 Pouille ahead of No.22 Gael Monfils, named as a reserve.

Tsonga is 18-7 in Davis Cup career singles and Pouille is 3-1.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut will play doubles in the September 15-17 tie at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille.

The countries have not met since the 2010 final, which Serbia won 3-2. But the Serbs will be without Novak Djokovic, who is skipping the rest of the season because of an injured right elbow.

France last reached the cup final in 2014, losing to Switzerland.

The winner will play Australia or Belgium in the final.
