The first round of the Fed Cup World Group is over. To say it was a dramatic weekend of tennis would be a massive understatement! There were shocks, surprises and plenty of questions asked but who were the winners and losers in round one?
Netherlands destroy Russia on home soil!
It could possibly be one of the biggest upsets in Fed Cup history. On paper this should have been a walk in the park for Russia but when is a match ever won on paper and ties like this is exactly what Fed Cup is all about. The Dutch had no top 100 players in their squad and Russia turn up on their own ground with all their top 60 ranked players including Sharapova who didn’t play and in live rubbers are defeated 3-0! It was a truly great performance from Kiki Bertens and Richel Hogenkamp.
Mauresmo’s France secure win!
