(Updates with Bartoli reaching Wimbledon semi-finals)
PARIS, July 4 France Fed Cup captain Georges
Goven has left out Marion Bartoli from his team to face holders
Italy in the semi-finals later this month.
Goven picked Amelie Mauresmo, who lost her Wimbledon crown
when she was beaten by Nicole Vaidisova on Tuesday, as well as
Tatiana Golovin, Nathalie Dechy and Severine Bremond.
France number two Bartoli has reached the semi-finals at
Wimbledon this week but Goven turned down her request to be
accompanied by her father and coach, Walter.
"I wanted to call up Marion Bartoli but it was not possible
because she is tired after playing a lot of tournaments and also
because the conditions for her to play for France are not met,"
Goven said in a statement on Wednesday.
"Her father told me she was not ready to play for France
without him being there. It's a pity."
Italian captain Corrado Barazzutti has called up Tathiana
Garbin, Mara Santangelo, Francesca Schiavone and Roberta Vinci
for the tie at Castellaneta Marina on July 14 and 15, leaving
out Flavia Pennetta.
