That's a possible combination. I know that Marion and Virginie aren't good friends so maybe that 's not good!

Re: Searching for French Stars for the FED CUP!!

France-USA will be played on CLAY (french tennis magazine January 2010).
It is easy to imagine Nicolas Escudé's choices. Clay between plexicushion (AO) and hard (Paris, Dubaď) : what a strange decision ?

Re: Searching for French Stars for the FED CUP!!

^Well he knows that France has a better chance on clay and that the WS most likely wouldn't play on clay during hard courts

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Searching for French Stars for the FED CUP!!

It's no for Marion. And Virginie has postponed her decision. She will take her decision after Australian Open :

Re: Searching for French Stars for the FED CUP!!

Not surprised about bartoli but quite disappointing answer from razzano.

The fed cup tie will be in France so no jetlag or what.Ok she had a bad 2008 season but dont think playing for her national team will make some damages.
Seems like she doesnt have the same love for fed cup amélie showed for so many years...

yeah disappointing for the french fed cup team.

Re: Searching for French Stars for the FED CUP!!

With Marion's limited schedule, it doesn't surprise me that she declined playing Fed Cup.

Aravane has been eager to represent France for ages, I will be her time as France's number 1!
I wonder if Kristina could be given a chance already. She is in FFT's numbers & won Roland-Garros junior last year.

I would love a next generation team with Aravane, Alizé, Pauline & Kristina.

**** KRISTINA MLADENOVIC Future Star ****

Supporting Marion Bartoli - Aga Radwańska - Aravane Rezaď - Laura Robson - Caroline Garcia !!!
