Yannick Noah

Noah’s style is a kind of perfect mixture between a french touch and Cameroom legacy. He looks very cool and I think he is. The French favorite person appears on stage with a class which requires compliance. And yet this singer is a former tennis player who one day, in 1983, give France its first Rolland Garros Franchman winner. And for a French it’s enormous…

He’s of course  remembered for winning Rolland Garros in 1983 but also to played on France’s Davis Cup for eleven years. In 1982, he reached the final of the competition with France team but France lost 4-1 against the USA.

Yannick Noah didn’t stop there with the Davis Cup. In 1991 he was the captain of French team which won the Davis Cup for the first time in 59 years.

It was a faboulus moment for French people and the Saga Africa song echoed on the final court. Remember…

After his tennisman career Yannick Noah devotes his time to music and charity organizations. He’s a very popular music performer who was able to fill in Stade de France for a big concert that was attended by close to 80 000 spectators. It was the 25 September 2010. This is an excerpt on the video :

He is also the father of Joakim Noah, the NBA player of Chicago Bulls.
