The first set and the early part of the second was a lot of good doubles play by Shriver and a lot of sleep-walking by Kohde-Kilsch. Somewhere around 4-0 down, Steffi made a "Now we have them right where we want them" kind of comment and Claudia woke up or loosened up and remembered she was actually one of the best doubles players in the world. And then Evert started to make some mistakes.

The one pic that I have seen from the 1983 Fed Cup title in Zurich showed Hana with slightly permed long hair and a plain white shirt with no sponsor patches. For some reason when she was with Ellesse she couldn't wear the official Czech outfit by Adidas. This changed when she switched to Reebok in 84. She also played this event with an unmarked Wilson graphite that I suppose she was testing. By the US Open she was with the marked Wilson Ultra 2 that she played with for the next 5 years.

It is

Google is offering me up nothing. You'd think since it was the 50th year at least one from each year would pop up somewhere

Hello Rollo I am in touch with the president of the Australian Federation Cup Foundation now so I will ask about those pics you requested. Fingers crossed
It would answer my prayers TV. For sentimental reasons I would really like to see a pic from 1970. Australia has such a rich history in the Fed Cup, so for now my fingers will will stay firmly crossed.

P.S. Hope the Tegart tribute went well

Re: Fed (Federation) Cup Trophy Pictures - 6 Left!

^Yeah, those are the years. But 1984 only has Hana in it I actually took opposite approach regarding 1984 and ask the Czech forum if they had any info/pics. And I have to put in 1985, but lazy...

This must be 1985. The surface and the heavy use of NEC make it clear this was Japan.

I set up a thread here to with 1984.

Uranium-it seems to me that you have pictures from both 1984 and 1985. the pic with palm trees MUST be Sao Paulo. I know we are looking for a better pic-but if we have to we can say with confidence it is 1984.

Ok-we are missing 1966, 1968, 1970, 1974, 1984.

1966 and 1974 were in Italy. Can Jimbo help us with these?

1968 was in Paris. Perhaps Andy T can help?

1984 was Brazil. Perhaps some Brazilians on GM can assist?

I have sent AndrewTas and TennisVideos a PM requesting help for 1970.

Lets get these elusive pics.
