    Argentina, France battle in Davis Cup quarterfinal Host nation Argentina looks to reach the final four in Davis Cup competition, as the former finalist hosts 9-time champion France at home. The tie is set to feature Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gilles Simon, Juan Monaco and David Nalbandian.

    Four-time finalist Argentina trails France 0-5 in Davis Cup play entering into the weekend’s quarterfinal round. The home nation will be looking to regroup after the pair’s 2010 meeting, where 9-time champion France posted a 5-0 drubbing in Lyon.

    Team captain Martin Jaite has selected world No. 19 Juan Monaco and world No. 71 Carlos Berlocq for singles competition. Rounding out the squad is World No. 39 Horacio Zeballos, who will join forces with former world No. 3 David Nalbandian in doubles.

    "(The visitors) are favorites, but Davis Cup always brings surprises," Jaite commented. "We are a very good team, we play at home and we are well and looking forward to it. We feel we can win it because we are working toward it. The group is very good and united."

    The quarterfinal tie will be contested on clay at Parque Roca in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    Visiting France is led by team captain Arnaud Clement, alongside top 10 stalwart Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Former world No. 6 Gilles Simon replaces an in-form Richard Gasquet, who withdrew due early this week. Veterans Michael Llodra and Julien Benneteau have been tapped to compete in doubles.
