- Yannick Noah's contract as captain of France's Davis Cup team has been extended for a year, the French Tennis Federation said. Noah, 56, who was the last Frenchman to win Roland Garros in 1983, took over for a third time in September 2015 after captaining France to victory in 1991 and 1996. France lost in the semi-finals of the 2016 Davis Cup to Croatia and travel to Japan for the first round of the 2017 edition in February.
