Fed Cup Final Preview: Australia vs. France – Who has the edge?

On the eve of the Fed Cup final in Perth, Catherine Whitaker and Matt Roberts are together at the O2 to look ahead to the tie.

They discuss the growing status of Ash Barty in Australia, the controversy surrounding Ajla Tomljanovic’s switch of allegiance, and the often-tumultuous but always-crucial relationship between Kiki Mladenovic and Caroline Garcia for France.

Elsewhere, David Law speaks to Nicole Pratt for an insight into the Australian camp. She talks about the ins and outs of her role as Fed Cup coach, the significance of this tie for Australia, why she always thought Ash Barty would win the French Open, and the possible impact that 40oC heat in Perth could have over the weekend.
