Arnaud Clement has been sacked as captain of France’s Davis Cup team, the French Tennis Federation (FFT) confirmed on Friday.
“The Federal Office has today decided to terminate the mandate of captain Arnaud Clement,” the FFT said on Twitter.
“The Federation welcomes his commitment over the past three years at the head of the France team.”
The 37-year-old former Wimbledon doubles champion helped guide France to last year’s Davis Cup final which they lost 3-1 to a Swiss side featuring Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka in Lille.
This year, France were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Great Britain at Queen’s Club in London.
Yannick Noah, the last Frenchman to win a grand slam singles title at the 1983 French Open, and former Wimbledon and US Open finalist Cedric Pioline have been touted as potential successors to Clement.
