Kristina Mladenovic defeated world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty to lead France to a 2-1 victory in the Fed Cup final against Australia.

Kristina Mladenovic (40th) put France back in the lead, one point behind victory, winning in sets 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7/1), Sunday in Perth (Australia).

After losing the first round 2-6, the French has tightened the game to win the second set (6-4), then begin the decisive round beating. Leading 3 games to 1, she saw her opponent return to his height and take the lead (4-3).

But Mladenovic did not let go and managed to push Barty to the tie-break. A final she dominated the head and shoulders, leaving only one point to the winner of Roland Garros and the Masters.

The fourth in theory will oppose Caroline Garcia (45th) to Ajla Tomljanovic (51st), but the two captains have up to ten minutes after the end of the third match to adjust their selection. France are chasing after their third Fed Cup trophy, after 1997 and 2003, Australia after their first in 45 years, the eighth overall.
