The Czech team has been defeated 2:3 by France at the Fed Cup World Group play-offs in Cagnes-Sur-Mer. Though Czech tennis star Nicole Vaidisova defeated France's Nathalie Dechy, Czech player Lucie Safarova was beaten by Tatiana Golovin and France also beat the Czechs in the doubles.
Nicole Vaidisova was a semi-finalist at last month's French Open where she beat Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo, whose absence from this weekend's tie due to injury has weakened the French team.
