I wish Garcia would toss the ball up before she started raising her arm for the serve. I'm sure a more fluid serve would add to her game.

Garcia and Kiki may never win a singles grand slam but they could win another RG doubles.

Just saw Niculescu chop back a backhand volley irectly to Mlaenovic (very slowly) as she relinquished a massive grunt.

Yeah. No doubt Simona kept her team in it with her excellent play from the baseline but I also think she lost it by missing some easy volleys in the third set (didn't Halep fluff a volley at 3-3 which would have given them three break points?) and then the double fault. This was understandable as she was clearly beginning to tire.

Niculescu had some moments of brilliance at the net but there were also times were she moved comically early which Garcia/Mladenovic took advantage of. It was a great match and it really could have gone either way.

Re: Gardenovic def Halep/Niculescu 5-7 6-3 6-4 FRA ROU 3-2 France In Finale

I always find it odd that countries bring an average doubles specialists like Olaru with zero intention of using them if there is a decisive doubles rubber. Seems a waste of a plane fare.

R.I.P Bally

Thankyou for years of service to British tennis

No dog in the fight, but happy for France. Nice celebration too.

It's like both teams agreed to put forth a lesser player and let them mug it out.
