The Danish tenniskvinder lost Saturday to Estonia in the fight to avoid relegation from the Fed Cup third level.

the Danes lost the first two singlekampe and went behind 0-2 in the matches. Thus the battle had been decided, as that played best out of three matches.

Doublekampen, which had to finish it all of was not the game, because the showdown was resolved.

With the defeat moves to Denmark down in the Europe/Africa Group 2, which corresponds to the fjerdebedste level.

Clara Tauson, who recently won the Australian Open for juniors, was, according to the French Tennis Federation sick and therefore could not play.

instead, the 17-year-old Hannah Viller Møller sent in action for his first singlekamp ever at the Fed Cup against Valeria Gorlats.

It went surprisingly well for the dane, although she was defeated 3-6, 6-3, 0-6.

Good enough, she lost the first set, but she came back and snatched the second set, after she broke Gorlats at a crucial time.

In the third set, however, there was not something to the raffle. The dane Estonian opponent broke three times and won the set in 24 minutes.

- I think, that she raised his game very much in the third set and played the best she had done in the whole match.

- at the same time, I took not my chances in the third set. She was more brave than I was. I was too careful, says Hannah Viller Møller.

Then had Karen Barritza try to equalize to 1-1 in matches against Anett Kontaveit.

But it was not successful for Barritza, there are number 669 in the world.

Kontaveit, which is number 20 in the world, won Saturday's second singlekamp with the persuasive digits 6-1, 6-4.

Fed Cup captain Jens Anker Andersen took stock after a heavy week for French tennis.

- Hannah delivered a fine effort against a skilled player and got the only set, we won down here. However, it is drønærgerligt that Clara has been sick, " says Jens Anker Andersen.

- It was not our week. I think we have the level to be here. So it is a shame to be relegated, and it is not so easy to move up again. It is a bit of a needle's eye, but we should go after, he says.

Earlier in the week lost Denmark to Russia and Poland.
