PA Sport via www.wimbledon.org:
Daniela Hantuchová will lead Slovakia in the Fed Cup encounter with Czech Republic next month.
Igor Moška, secretary general of the Slovakian tennis-association, confirmed the 23-year-old's participation in the World Group II match which will take place in Bratislava on April 21 and 22.
Moška told www.tenis.sme.sk: "Daniela Hantuchová will be the captain of our team in the Fed Cup match against Czech Republic. She wanted to play on clay, so we decided for this surface."
He added: "Other members of our team will be Dominika Cibulková, Janette Husárová and Magdaléna Rybáriková.
"Jarmila Gajdošová announced that she will not play, and Martina Suchá will decide after coming back from a tournament in Miami.
"This match will probably be the most important sporting-event in the first half of 2007 in Slovakia."
Slovakia have played Czech Republic in the Fed Cup once before on a hard surface, losing 2:1 in 2000. On that occasion, Hantuchová beat Květa Hrdličková [now Peschke] 6-4 6-2, but Karina Habšudová lost 6-4 6-4 to Denisa Chládková before Habšudová and Hantuchová went down 7-5 6-3 to Dája Bedáňová and Hrdličková.
