Obviously France is one if not the favorite team for 2016 since other top ten players will barely play it and surely not the big four
Yesterday the staff who was already known has been officially revealed.
Lionel Roux is replaced by Pioline and Loic Couteau two for one since you know Noah won't travel, it's too much for his greatness and his amazing winning speech which has to be keep for the davis cup week
Courteau will lead the trainings during the week before ties as he's the only one who he's really a coach.
Xavier Moreau physical trainer for Fed Cup and former trainer in FFT and of Mauresmo or Pierce currently working with Tsonga and Mahut will be the trainer. I still don't know how he can do all this but we'll see.
Medical staff remains the same despite all controversy over the years about player's injuries
. Of course the Tsonga's one in Lille but I remember Gasquet, Grosjean or Monfils debates on injuries. Anyway the two physio are the youngest of the staff and quite good they stay in the team they seem get along with players and good guys. The stringer is still there since 1991
It's not really a fresh team as they are in the french circuit since ages and average 50 years old staff. To be picked you had to be friend with Noah actually. The physios remained surely because they are good and Noah don't know physio under 60 years old
The surface should be clay and we all have noted that Tsonga will do the south american swing before that tie.
