The Blues save (a little) the honor. In the doubles, which concluded the day, the pair Caroline Garcia/Kristina Mladenovic battled until the super tie-break to dominate Martina Trevisan and Elisabetta Cocciaretto (5-7, 6-2, 10-6). This doubles point could possibly weigh depending on the final results of group D, completed by the German team, the Blue's next opponent on Friday from 10 a.m. Germany can very well revive the French team in the event of success over Italy... Tatjana Maria (57th) and the very recent winner of the WTA Masters in doubles Laura Siegemund are not favorites against the Italians... To be invited to the last square, you must finish at the top of your group. The semi-finals are scheduled for Saturday, the final on Sunday. Each match consists of two singles followed by a doubles.
After the catastrophic end of Caroline Garcia's match against Jasmine Paolini (7-6 (8/6), 5-7, 6-4), while she led 4-2 in the last set, France lost 2-0 against Italy. The Lyonnaise broke down at the end of the match, losing the last four games and in the tie-break, in the first set she also let a set point slip away after leading 5 to 2... In the first match of the day, Alizé Cornet, preferred by captain Julien Benneteau to novice Varvara Gracheva (44th), naturalized in May, also surrendered in three sets (2-6, 6-2, 6-2) against Martina Trevisan.
