No surprise in France’s Fed Cup team against Romania

PARIS (AP) — Kristina Mladenovic, Caroline Garcia, Pauline Parmentier and Alize Cornet have been named in France’s Fed Cup team for the semifinals against Romania.

France will host the best-of-five series on clay in the Normandy city of Rouen from April 20-21.

Romania, which upset defending champion Czech Republic in the previous round, won its only other Fed Cup meeting with France in 1976. The French are trying to qualify for a sixth final, while Romania never advanced past the semifinals.

The other semifinal pits Australia against Belarus.
