French underdogs humiliate superstars Sharapova & Kuznetsova, but they better watch out ‘coz Safina is on the bench!

France is 2-0 up at the end of day 1 in Moscow following upsets by Alize Cornet and Virginie Razzano who defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova and Maria Sharapova respectively.

Cornet got the visitors off to the best possible start in the opening rubber when she battled back from one set down to overcame two-time Grand Slam champion Kuznetsova 36 63 64. It was her first singles win in Fed Cup play.

Razzano then turned the tables on Sharapova, who defeated her at this year’s Australian Open in a close-fought match. The Russian was making her first Fed Cup by BNP Paribas appearance since 2008.
