Keys leads United States Fed Cup team
World No.22 Madison Keys named for first Fed Cup tie since 2014
World No.22 and Australian Open 2015 semifinalist Madison Keys headlines the United States team for next weekend’s Fed Cup Play-off against Australia.
Keys was named alongside world No.36 CoCo Vandeweghe, world No.57 Christina McHale and doubles world No.3 Bethanie Mattek-Sands for the tie at Brisbane’s Pat Rafter Arena.
Keys last played Fed Cup in 2014.
“I am thrilled to have Madison playing with us again,” said American captain Mary-Joe Fernandez. “This team also has depth with CoCo, who has been playing well in both singles and doubles this year, as well as Christina, who has a lot of Fed Cup experience. Bethanie rounds out the team as a reliable doubles player with two impressive back-to-back doubles titles in Indian Wells and Miami.
“We haven’t played Australia in Fed Cup for quite some time and they will be a tough team, but we look forward to trying to get a win to get back into the World Group next year.”
Australian captain Alicia Molik has named a strong team of Sam Stosur, Daria Gavrilova, Casey Dellacqua and Arina Rodionova.
General admission tickets to the tie are on sale now through Ticketek. Adult tickets start at $25 and children’s tickets start at just $5.
