If anyone has some first serves going spare please send them to Marseille...

Kiki won the first set 6-1 as Giorgi sprayed errors all over the place, then Giorgi collected her self a bit and Kiki lost the second 4-6 after a tussle and then her already wobbly first serve left the building entirely in the third, and she lost it 1-6.

Hopefully Caro can stay focused and get her serves over the net.

Caro's going to need that first serve care package as well...

So it's 1-1 at the end of the first day.

Hoping for some better serving, less double faults and no foot faults - the line judges seemed to have some kind of foot fault vendetta against Kiki in the first rubber - and for Caro to volley better because there were some shockers at the net from her today and that won't cut it in the doubles.

Kiki made up for yesterday by putting on a great performance today. The first set could have gone either way but after Kiki won the first set tiebreak she dropped just one game.

France lead 2-1.

Caro vs Giorgi next, which is probably the tougher match because Giorgi is so unpredictable.

Caro wins 6-3 6-4, and France wins the tie 3-1. They'll face the Netherlands away in April.

Edit: apparently it will actually be a home tie - at least that is what the Fed Cup twitter account says.

Final French Fed Cup post for the day.

Kiki and Caro played the dead doubles rubber and defeated Errani and Caregaro 6-0 6-1 to put a pretty emphatic end to the tie.

After that a lot of water got thrown on the team by the French back-room staff on the bench. Seemed like Amelie's former fitness trainer Xavier Moreau was particularly determined to pour as much water on her as he could.
