Yannick Noah is back in tennis. After years travelling the world as a pop star, the former French Open champion will return to the sport that made him in a global sensation, now as the coach of the French Davis Cup team for 2016.
Noah will replace Arnaud Clement who was fired last week.
Despite a deep team, France hasn’t won the Davis Cup since 2001. And this summer they lost to Great Britain in the quarterfinals.
Noah led France to two Davis Cup titles in 1991 and 1996.
