PARIS, April 11, 2007 (AFP) - Tatiana Golovin will spearhead France's Fed Cup World Group first round campaign against Japan at home from April 21-22, team captain Georges Goven announced Wednesday.

The 19-year-old Golovin, fresh from winning her first WTA title at Amelia Island, Florida last weekend steps in for French number one Amelie Mauresmo, who is recovering following surgery for appendicitis.

Severine Bremond, Nathalie Dechy and Virginie Razzano will complete the home team for the tie scheduled for the Palais des Sports Beaublanc in the central  town of Limoges.

This will be the seventh meeting between the two nations with France holding a 5-1 advantage. At their last meeting in 1997 France beat Japan 4-1 in Tokyo.
