Paris - France's Davis Cup team captain Yannick Noah said on Tuesday he will not name a replacement for Richard Gasquet after the world No 26 pulled out of the final due to injury.

Gasquet's decision, made on Monday when he cited an unspecified injury, leaves France relying on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Lucas Pouille for the singles rubbers of the November 23-25 final against Croatia in Lille.

Noah, a French Open winner in 1983, has also selected Jeremy Chardy and doubles pair Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

The 58-year-old has also selected Benoit Paire and Julien Benneteau as reserves in the event of a late withdrawal.

France hold 10 Davis Cup titles and will defend their 2017 crown against a Croatia team that has triumphed only once, in 2005.
