This year's Fed Cup final in Strasbourg between France and the Czech Republic was decided in the doubles match on Sunday night. The duo of Barbora Strýcová and Karolína Plíšková defeated Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic in a tense two-setter: the final score was 7:5, 7:5. The Czech women's tennis team has now won three Fed Cup championships in a row and five in the last six years.
Earlier on Sunday in the second singles match of the day, Strýcová stepped in for an injured Petra Kvitová against France's Alizé Cornet. The Czech squad at that point was trailing 2-1 on points and needed the win to avoid going out. Strýcová downed her opponent 6:2,7:6 to force the decider.
