France to host Spain in Davis Cup on hard court in Lille
PARIS (AP) Defending champion France will return to the city of Lille to face Spain in the Davis Cup semifinals in September.
The French tennis federation says the Sept. 14-16 matches will be played on an indoor hard court at the 27,500-capacity Pierre Mauroy Stadium, with the roof closed.
France won its 10th Davis Cup title last year in the same venue, beating Belgium 3-2. The northern city also played host to the 2014 final that France lost to Switzerland.
