Audio interview

Alize Cornet talks to Craig Gabriel ahead of France’s tie with Russia in the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group first round, being held in Moscow on 5-6 February.

Cornet knows it will be an uphill battle for France, as Russia has named both Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova from its vast pool of world class talent, but the world No. 83 is still confident that the visitors will put up a good fight.

Cornet can also take heart from France’s last Fed Cup trip to the Olympic Stadium, in 2003, when Amelie Mauresmo and Mary Pierce led the team to a famous 3-2 win en route to lifting the trophy for a second time.
