May 12 Wollongong to host tie
Wollongong, NSW, will host the upcoming Fed Cup Qualifying Tie against Colombia (July 19-20), Tennis Australia President Geoff Pollard announced today.
The Optus Australian Fed Cup Team will return to Wollongong's WIN Entertainment Centre, the site of their victory last year against The Netherlands, to this time battle Colombia for the chance to remain in the elite 16-nation Fed Cup World Group.
"After the fantastic crowd support and great atmosphere produced at last year's Qualifying Tie, I know Fed Cup Captain Evonne Goolagong Cawley and the team are looking forward to returning to Wollongong to once again play in front of such a vocal home crowd," Pollard said.
"Last year Wollongong was the scene of one of Australia's biggest crowds in recent times for a home Fed Cup Tie and one we hope will be repeated in just over two months when we take on Colombia."
The Fed Cup Tie will be played indoors on plexipave hardcourt. This is the first time the two countries have met before in Fed Cup history.
Meanwhile, the venue for the Davis Cup Semifinal tie against Switzerland is still to be determined. Australia is also hosting this tie and an announcement regarding the location is expected in the next 48 hours
