Audio interview


  • Stuart Fraser

LIMOGES, FRANCE: Amelie Mauresmo speaks of her emotions at leading her country out in Fed Cup by BNP Paribas as captain for the first time.

The highly decorated player, who won Fed Cup in 2003, made a huge breakthrough by persuading Marion Bartoli to play once again, but her No. 1 player was forced to withdraw with the flu.

In her place, Pauline Parmentier will play and the Frenchwoman talks of her feelings ahead of the tie. Elsewhere Kristina Mladenovic speaks of making her debut appearance in the competition.

Julia Goerges talks about her loss to Kristina Mladenovic last week at Paris Indoors on carpet where she was defeated in a third set tie break.
