Re: World Group 1st Round: Australia at France (January 31-February 2, 2014)

Will be a really interesting tie.
Australia has a young team with experimented Hewitt.
French team has a good level team, but some players are not that confident after AO (Tsonga, Gasquet).
France should win it, but Kyrgios & Kokkinakis are interesting players.
Also match up between Clement & Rafter will be interesting
