The French doubles team of Kristina Mladenovic and Caroline Garcia defeated the Australian duo of Ashleigh Barty and Samantha Stosur 6-4, 6-3 on Sunday, giving France a 3-2 victory over Australia and its third Fed Cup title.

"It's lots of emotion to share this with Caro after three years ago we failed on the last step of the tie," Mladenovic said. "Today, we just wanted to take this little revenge for ourselves and it's just not describable how we feel right now."
