Paris:

France captain Guy Forget has selected Julien Benneteau, Richard Gasquet, Michael Llodra and Gilles Simon in his team to play Austria in the first round of the Davis Cup next month.

Forget will be without his two best players, the 12th-ranked Gael Monfils and No. 17 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga because of injury, but decided against naming a fifth player as a replacement.

Forget says, "Once again, bad luck has struck" but that despite the injuries "our reservoir (of players) allows us to pick a very competitive team."

The March 4-6 clay-court tie will be indoors in Vienna.

France was missing the former Australian Open runner-up Tsonga when it lost the Davis Cup final to Serbia last year.
