• Pregnant French Fed Cup captain Mauresmo quits


    PARIS: Amelie Mauresmo stepped down Monday (Tuesday in Manila) as French Fed Cup captain saying that she was pregnant, a day after the team lost in the final to the Czech Republic. The former world number one took over as team captain in 2012, leading France to promotion from the Fed Cup second division during her term. Mauresmo, 37, who formerly coached world No.1 Andy Murray, said she had kept the news secret from the team which fell 3-2 to defeat to the Czechs in Strasbourg on Sunday. She said that her decision had nothing to do with tension within the team following the defeat.
