Slovakia vs France Fed Cup 2012
Slovakia clear favourites as French trailblazer Marion Bartoli is confirmed out of the tournament.
Slovakian top 25 players Cibulkova and Hantuchova are expected to feature along Rybarikova and either Husarova or up and comer Cepelova. The french are expected to side a consideraly weaker team possibly comprising Cornet, Johansson, Parmentier and Rezai. A french upset seems unlikely even if one of Hantuchova or Cibulkova are out.
My pick is a 5-0 whitewash to the Slovaks
