Fed Cup 2014

Hobart to host Australia v Fed Cup tie


Hobart has been chosen to host the blockbuster Australia versus Russia Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group tie in February 2014.

The Australian camp is delighted with the choice of the Domain Tennis Centre, which is internationally renowned as one of the most picturesque tennis venues in the world.

“It is going to be a great tie and we are all excited to be playing in front of a parochial home crowd in what will be a big test for us,” Australian No.1 Sam Stosur said. “I am really looking forward to it.”

Fed Cup captain Alicia Molik echoed Stosur’s sentiments.

“It is just such a great venue in a very welcoming town like Hobart. It is the perfect place for what is a big tie for us,” Molik said.

The venue holds a special place in the heart of the Fed Cup captain as it was the site of her first WTA title, the Hobart International, in 2003.

“Obviously I loved playing tennis there and our girls do too. I think it will give us a tremendous opportunity to show the very well educated Tasmanian tennis fans just how talented our Australian girls are up against one of the best teams in the world,” Molik continued.

The bid to host the tie was hotly contested with the Hobart submission winning through because of the high quality venue, excellent hard court and the city’s excellent track record in enthusiastically supporting international tennis

Re: Fed Cup 2014

I wonder who else put in for it...I personally don't have a problem with it....everyone else gets their fair share already....maybe could of gone to Adelaide.... would love to have it in Perth but we don't have a facility good enough given the pathetic state of the State Tennis Centre and the cost of Perth Arena would rule that out...

Re: Fed Cup 2014

Hopefully Russia will field a team like the one in this year's Fed cup final

Agreed, that team is an absolute disgrace

Re: Fed Cup 2014

Unsure why they scheduled it against the Sofia tournament, but the Russians have always been fickle when it comes to Fed Cup anyway. But Id be expecting a fairly strong team after the AO.

So Stosur, Dellacqua, Barty and ???

Dellacqua and Barty are probably certain as they are in 50k Burnie but not 50k Launceston
Nastya is in Pattaya the week before, doubt she'd be selectef though
Jarka, Storm and Liv are still in 50k Launceston

Re: Fed Cup 2014

U'd have to go with Sam, Casey, Ash, Jarka.

Sam Casey singles day one
Sam Jarka singles day two
Casey Ash doubles.

Does any one have any inside info about who is available to play for Russia? Hopefully a repeat of their field for the finals.

Sam , Casey , Ash and Jarka

I don't believe the forth player will play (baring injury).

Hard to know who is available for Russia. We will find out soon

Re: Fed Cup 2014

^ I think Jarka should be left out for this tie to get her ranking back up. She would be 4th in line for singles anyway. For me, either Liv or Storm as the 4th player.

Casey would be in line for the 2nd singles spot, but her record in Fed Cup singles isn't great. Admittedly she's in a better spot now than she was a few years back.

^^^ yeah Jarka, Storm or Olivia will be the 4th player and unlikely to play. Just thought Jarka may be more willing to be the team cheerleader and able to step in if there is an injury.

Re: Fed Cup 2014

Storm withdrew from $50K Launceston yesterday, so I'm assuming she's been picked as the number 4 'invisible' player.

Olivia still in the main draw list and I don't think they'd pick her over Storm, considering a) neither play will play a live singles rubber and b) Olivia has tasted Fed Cup before, Storm hasn't.

Jarmila is also still in the main draw list. Hope she doesn't get picked.

Sam, Casey, Ash and Storm. That'll be the team I reckon.

And Storm is still in $50K Burnie so I guess she is the 4th player unless she is the orange girl again

Re: Fed Cup 2014

RUS team for Fed Cup tie vs AUS—Kan (157), Solovyeva (230), Khromacheva (254), Kudermetova (697). Myskina as team's coach instead of Tarp https://twitter.com/AnnaK_4ever/stat...28101054173184


Australia should win this.
