Wow Ash! Very impressive.

Glad Sam was able to get through two matches, injury must be healing.

Sam seemed to struggle on serve, slow wet conditions probably worked against her. Good to get the win, now quickly get to Germany and keep up the solid form.

Fantastic result from Ash! Great win against an inform opponent. Finally sustained her level against a top 100 player throughout a whole match. Credit to Alicia for putting her into singles.

Great stuff

First FC win for Ash and the fact that Sam got though those two matches in one day is a good sign

Yes props to Alicia! Took a risk and paid off

Great win for the girls under difficult conditions. So glad to hear Sam played two solid matches injury free and a great effort from Ash in her first singles tie. Well done Alicia on trusting the talents of your younger team member.

Patience rewarded.

It must have been hell waiting the whole weekend for the break in the rain that never came, and then to come out with so much poise and focus, just an amazing effort.

Sam was a rock, playing her first two matches back after an injury that is still not completely healed, just gave it her all and did the job for her country, as so often in the past.

Ash was awesome as well, a huge win for her and for the team. Hopefully this will be a stepping stone for her to start to fulfil the promise we've seen in her for a long time already.

So proud of Ash! And great decision by Alicia - she probably knew that Jarka wasn't going to defeat anybody, let alone Voegele.

Sharapova • Svitolina • Muguruza • Bencic • Tsurenko
Kasatkina • Puig • Bacsinszky • Cornet • Strycova • Cepelova
