Marion Bartoli, the number one ranked French tennis player in the women’s circuit has every right to be furious with the captain of the French Fed Cup team Nicolas Escude for overlooking her for the match against Slovakia, according to some former and current French professional tennis players, who have all taken her side in this war of words between Bartoli and the France Tennis Federation as well as Escude. One of the most notable names who have come out in support of Bartoli is former world number three Mary Pierce.

According to the former two-time Grand Slam winner, Escude should not have let the personal problems come in the way of the team selection for such a prestigious competition as the Fed Cup. Instead, they should have sat down and solved the matter for the betterment of the French team and the sport in general in the country. Mary Pierce also went on to add that France will not have many problems negotiating past Slovakia without Bartoli but she also raised the question as to whether Escude would have had the guts to leave Bartoli out had their opponents been stronger such as the United States of America or Serbia and the likes.

Not only Pierce, another former French player who has taken the side of Bartoli in this debate is Arnaud Clement. He also added that his onetime Davis Cup team mate Nicolas Escude should know better than to leave out the most experienced player from the side and he hoped that this would not be repeated in the future and their problems off the court would be settled off it.

With the support that Bartoli is getting from Clement and Mary Pierce, it seems that round one of this debate has gone to her and it is worth seeing what Escude does for the next tie.
