France to play GB tie on clay
France's Davis Cup quarterfinal tie against Britain will take place on clay in Rouen, the French Tennis Federation (FFT) said on Monday.
France won 4-1 in Japan a couple of weeks ago to reach this stage while Britain triumphed 3-2 in Canada when Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov forfeited the deciding rubber after firing a ball into the umpire's face.
The quarterfinal tie, on a surface where Britain has rarely excelled, will take place from April 7-9.
Britain last won the Davis Cup in 2015, a year after France were beaten in the final by Switzerland.
France have lost three finals since their last victory in 2001.
