Former French Open winner Yannick Noah and fellow Davis Cup winner Guy Forget will appear before the Senate, the upper house of the French Parliament, on Tuesday as part of a probe into tax evasion.

The hearing, which will be open to the press, will focus on tax evasion and off-shore investments.

The 52-year-old Noah, the last French player to win Roland Garros in 1983, went before the French constitutional court last September to protest at a ruling ordering him to pay one million euros in back taxes.

Former tennis player Forget, 47, helped France win the Davis Cup in 1991 and 1996 and has served as France’s Davis Cup since retiring.
