PARIS, (Reuters) – Lucas Pouille has been named alongside Richard Gasquet to lead the charge against Spain in their Davis Cup semi-final next week.

Captain Yannick Noah on Tuesday picked the duo and Benoit Paire, Nicolas Mahut and Julien Benneteau as Les Bleus look to reach their third final in five years.

They lost to Switzerland in 2014 but beat Belgium last year. The tie will be played at Lille’s Pierre Mauroy stadium from Sept 14-16.
