France set up Fed Cup final against Australia

France set up a Fed Cup final against Australia on Sunday when Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic, who once were barely on speaking terms, teamed-up to crown a 3-2 victory over Romania. Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic beat Simona Halep and Monica Niculescu 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 in the deciding doubles to claim the winning point for two-time champions France. "Every match was incredible," Benneteau told fedcup.com. "I am so proud of them. It was always my intention to put them together -- and it was not hard to do." Australia, the seven-time winners, beat Belarus 3-2 in Brisbane earlier Sunday to make their first final in 26 years.
