France return to the World Group for 2015. The draw takes place in Paris on Wednesday 4 June 2014.
Last tie 19-20 April 2014
Inspired by an in-form Caroline Garcia, the French team overcame USA in St. Louis to return to the highest level of the Fed Cup. Garcia got her team off to the perfect start, as she defeated world No. 17 Sloane Stephens in straight sets, but the Americans rallied as Madison Keys beat an injured Alize Cornet and Stephens made amends with a win against Virginie Razzano. But Garcia scored her second win of the tie to take the contest into the doubles, where she teamed up with Razzano win promotion for the French.
France were crowned champions in both 1997 and 2003. They also reached the Final in 2004 and 2005 and are one of only four nations to compete in every Fed Cup.
In 1997, France's World Group first round tie against Japan entered the record books on three counts - most number of games in a tie (162) and joint most number of games in a rubber (54) and set (32), when Nathalie Tauziat defeated Naoko Sawamatsu 75 46 1715.
