Tennis: France enter their third Hopman Cup final against debutants Poland
PERTH (AFP) - France will play in their third Hopman Cup final after Alize Cornet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga beat defending champions Spain 3-0 at the mixed-team tennis tournament on Friday.
The French will face the top-seeded Polish pairing of Agnieszka Radwanska and Grzegorz Panfil in Saturday's final.
France previously reached the title decider in Perth in 1998 and 2012. Two years ago, the team of Richard Gasquet and Marion Bartoli lost the final to the Czech Republic pairing of Tomas Berdych and Petra Kvitova.
In 1998, Mary Pierce and Cedric Pioline were beaten by Slovakia's Karina Habsudova and Karol Kucera.
