PARIS -- Lucas Pouille will lead France in the Davis Cup final against Croatia this month as the hosts bid to win successive titles.
Pouille wrapped up France's 10th Davis title last year by winning the decisive point against Belgium in the final.
France's top player, the 26th-ranked Richard Gasquet, announced his withdrawal on Monday because of a groin injury.
"The only thing I know is that our goal is to win against the Croats," Noah said. "The mindset, the ability to adapt to clay, and the commitment to Davis Cup are what really matters."
Like last year, the final will be at Pierre Mauroy Stadium in the northern city of Lille from Nov. 23-25 under a retractable roof.
Noah has summoned his players for a training camp nearby outside the city.
"It's easier to work as a group away from all the excitement," he said.
Pouille, Tsonga, and Chardy have already started training. Herbert and Mahut will join them after playing doubles at the ATP Finals in London.
Noah, who guided France to two Davis Cup titles as a player and one as coach, will step down after the final, and Amelie Mauresmo will take over.
