The Fed Cup is the highest team event for women in tennis. It is the women’s equivalent of the Davis Cup and was launched in 1963 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the International Tennis Federation.
Australia is one of four nations to have competed in Fed Cup competition every year. Australia sits second on the all-time champions list.
Next tie: Switzerland v Australia
20–21 April 2013, World Group Play-off
Venue: Tennis Club Chiasso, Chiasso, Switzerland
Australia was originally awarded choice of ground, but the Fed Cup Committee has approved a proposal by the two nations to move the tie to Switzerland. As part of the agreement, Australia will now have choice of ground on the next two occasions Australia and Switzerland meet in Fed Cup.
The winner of this tie will qualify for the 2014 Fed Cup World Group, while the loser will contest 2014 World Group II.
