Actually, there was a lot of publicity when the Fed Cup team beat the Netherlands last July.
Alicia got a lot of coverage during and after the Hopman Cup in January.
And Pratty got HUGE coverage during the Australian Open - including at least one full page, full colour poster in the Melbourne Herald Sun.
Plus, local tournaments seem to get a lot of coverage - e.g. the Illawarra Mercury (?) devoted an enormous amount of space to the Fed Cup last year and the Canberra Times devotes an enormous amount of space to the Canberra Women's Classic each year.
But, on the whole, the coverage of women's sport (and minority sports) is somewhat lacking.
And just in case you didn't hear the news earlier this year:
- the Australian women's softball team has qualified for the Olympic Games
- the Australian women's soccer team (the Matildas) has qualified for the Women's World Cup!
