Jérémy Chardy and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will play single on Friday to France in the Davis Cup final.
Jérémy Chardy and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga were chosen by Yannick Noah to play the single in the Davis Cup final starting on Friday. Barea will face Borna Coric Friday (14:00), and Tsonga will find Marin Cilic ahead. Lucas Pouille is not part of the final option. Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut will play double against Mate Pavic and Ivan Dodig on Saturday.
For his last on Blues, Yannick Noah has decided to try a final shot. Jérémy Chardy, penugain world player, will launch Blues Corne Coric (No. 12) on Friday at the Davis Cup final. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will then face Marin Cilic. Due to his good results in the competition despite his difficult time, his status and confidence of his captain are constantly renewed, Lucas Pouille (No. 32) has long been expected as a holder the Croats. The captain finally chose another route.
The ease of Palois on an indoor clay court, chosen by the Blues for this final, had pushed Noah to appeal to. Chardy was born as a tennis player on this surface. "I learned to play on it"He explained at the beginning of November after his selection. This facility and a beautiful training sequence since the start of the camp in North Wales has been replaced by Pouille, last year's titleman against Belgium.
The option to see the North Play this weekend is still open. "We have a team of five. There's an opportunity to (the unchecked player, note) give back on Sunday »says Cédric Pioline on Wednesday. But in the meantime, there will be a courtyard on the Friday court. And unlike the other two alternatives, he has never played the Davis Cup final yet. Against Coric, the dockets have a chance: it leads two victories to one (one everywhere on the ground).
Chardy won the three games played on clay in the Davis Cup. Fur Jurgen Melzer and Martin Fischer in 2011 and against Daniel Evans in 2017.
In the other game on Friday, the balance is prominent in the Croatian side. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga lost five of seven times when Marin Cilic played (# 7). Manceau, now 259 players in the world and who has won only one game since February, is also a bet. But the captain had to have seen the brilliant season of the French. This option proves to be convinced that the pre-finalized Australian Opening can cash on the ground up to the top five sets.
For the double, and unlike last year when Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Richard Gasquet chose to align a lot of ink, Noa did the classic. Herbert and a friend on the circuit, Nicolas Mahut, protect the blue opportunities. A slight rejection for the second, having finally drawn from the 2017 last minute. It will live this unique moment for the last of the current formula. This will usually face Mate Pavic and Ivan Dodig. But Marin Cilic continues to be an option for a Saturday.
