LLEIDA, SPAIN: Spanish players Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez and Lourdes Dominguez Lino reflect on their singles victories in today's Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off against France.

Martinez Sanchez talks tactics and admits to thinking the Spanish team is deservedly back in the World Group after a two-year absence.

Spanish captain Miguel Margets Lobato believes Martinez Sanchez has been the key for Spain in this year's Fed Cup campaign and is confident his team will cope with the pressure of being in the World Group next year.

Elsewhere, Aravane Rezai and Pauline Parmentier look back on their losses to the Spanish today, while French captain Nicoals Escude gives his thoughts on a disappointing weekend for France.
