STUTTGART, Germany -- Florian Mayer will lead Germany against France in their Davis Cup quarterfinal next month.

Philipp Kohlschreiber, Philipp Petzschner and doubles player Christopher Kas complete the German team announced Tuesday by captain Patrik Kuehnen.

Kuehnen says France is the favorite in the July 8-10 event on a clay court in Stuttgart.

France was runner-up to Serbia last year.
