PARIS (AP) - France captain Amelie Mauresmo will have her best players against the Netherlands in the Fed Cup semifinals next week.

Maursemo named Kristina Mladenovic, Caroline Garcia, Alize Cornet and Pauline Parmentier on Wednesday for the April 16-17 series on clay in Trelaze.

Mauresmo convinced the 45th-ranked Cornet to return to the team after she skipped the first round against Italy. Maursemo says Cornet is “back in this adventure because I want the best possible team.”

The French are aiming to reach their first final in 11 years, while the Netherlands have won eight in a row and are unbeaten under captain Paul Haarhuis.
