Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Mickael Llodra and Julien Benneteau will form the France team to face Canada in the Davis Cup in Vancouver on February 10-12, the French Tennis Federation (FFT) announced on Tuesday.

In his final season as captain of the France team, Guy Forget will deploy Tsonga and Monfils in the singles on Friday and pair Llodra with Benneteau in Saturday's doubles, the FFT revealed.

"I don't think it's a huge surprise," said Forget, who overlooked both Gilles Simon and Richard Gasquet for selection.

The winners of the World Group first-round tie will advance to the quarter-finals.
