well not really convinced about pauline parmentier in this team, I think C.Garcia and A.Cornet are the two to compete in singles
the question is who to pair up with GOAT Mladenovic in doubles (she's still in AO to play another mixte double finale) ?
I expect Italian coach to surprise us and chose Giorgi against Cornet, she beat her last year at Strasbourg, it was on clay
Italy is the best team of the two, the favourite one, we'll see
It will be very good if Barazzutti chooses Knapp or Vinci. Alize can win against one of them. But I'm sure that Giorgi will play against Cornet. Okay, we'll see it tomorrow. Can't wait.hi
actually Caroline did beat Errani also on clay, it was in Madrid last year, in 3 sets. Italian are favourite to win the tie but the French will have no pressure at all while as you said the Italians will have A LOT.
Giorgi will be indeed the most "vulnerable" of all players cause not much experience of this fed cup competition. In fact the italian coach can also chose Knapp to play instand of Giorgi, so many options for the italians whereas not many for us
