Paris - French number one Caroline Garcia has been called up for the April 20-21 Fed Cup semi-final in Rouen against Romania along with Alize Cornet, Kristina Mladenovic and Pauline Parmentier.

The world number 21 Garcia had hinted following the quarter-final win over Belgium that her participation in the last-four showdown would not be a formality.

Coach Julien Benneteau insisted on Monday he was "no longer worried about whether she turned up or not".

"I called her to inform her of her selection and she told me 'it's important for me'," he said.

Garcia's outing against Belgium, where she won two singles rubbers, was her first involvement in the Fed Cup after a two-year absence from the competition.
