I watched end of the 2nd and 3rd set.
Amazing, very fun and high-quality tennis
Very entertaining to watch this doubles. Many great rallies
Heartbreaking loss for Simona Halep and Romania
2 games away from the Fed Cup final at 4-4 in 3rd set.
Unfortunately Halep served VERY bad in this game at 4-4, lost it with a DF
And then Garcia servebotted France in the next game to the final.
Halep/Moni had many chances in set 3, but did not take their chances.
Often so close to break Garcia/Mladenovic, but never made it. Frustrating
This doubles rubber was VERY close and equal.
The only difference was that France served better.
So sad for Simona. Romania was sooo close to the final and the title
Romania had a huge chance to win the title this year. Not sure if it will come again.
2 games away from Fed Cup final. Czech Republic out. And Australia in the final.
Next year it will be hard. Romania have to start from zero again.
And pretty sure that Kvitova will play for CZE next year (more difficult to beat).
But Halep is the main reason Romania was so close to the Fed Cup final.
She wins most of her matches, is very impressive in singles, the hero of Romania.
In this tie again she won both her singles rubbers and also played the doubles.
I only have to give Simona big respect/credit. Romania should be proud of her
Also big respect to Niculescu who played (again) very impressive in doubles.
Begu is to blame. She NEVER should have lost to Parmentier
I mean to face Parmentier in a Fed Cup SF ! That's as easy as it gets. A must win !
Romania's weakness is the 2nd singles player
Halep is GREAT and the main reason for Romania's success.
And Romania's doubles with Monica is very good, one of the best.
Congrats, France !
They were a little bit better. Garcia/Mladenovic served better in doubles than Halep/Niculescu - the reason why they won the deciding doubles.
And as I said Begu should never have lost to Parmentier.
