Amelie Mauresmo has been appointed captain of France's Fed Cup team.

The former top-ranked Mauresmo, a two-time Grand Slam champion, replaces Nicolas Escude.

The French Tennis Federation announced Mauresmo's appointment on its official Twitter page on Thursday.

The 33-year-old Mauresmo won 25 career titles, including the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2006. She reached the Australian Open final in 1999 and was a two-time U.S. Open semifinalist and an Olympic silver medalist in 2004.

Escude clashed with Marion Bartoli, France's highest-ranked player, during his time as captain. He left her off the team because of her independent coaching setup with her father.
