Tennis: Fed Cup captain announces team for match against France
Fed Cup non-player captain Florin Segarceanu has announced on Monday the players in view of the match against France, in Rouen, during April 20-21, 2019.
The summoned players are: Simona Halep, Mihaela Buzarnescu, Irina Begu, Monica Niculescu and Raluca Olaru. There is onle one change against the previous match against the Czech Republic – Raluca Olaru replaces Ana Bogdan.
Segarceanu wanted to stress one issue, i.e. “Simona Halep has never requested for a player not to be summoned, she has never decided who is to play and who will not and has never requested more money.”
“I wanted to make it public now, to avoid charges from the press against the team. We need calm before such an important match and it is sad to see some malevolent people want to divide the team. (…) I can assure you there is no scandal in Romania’s Fed Cup team,” Segarceanu said.
