Interesting. Perth will help prime-time viewing for the east coast.

Hard court should give both teams a very good chance.

Perth usually has good crowds, so the atmosphere should be fantastic for the final

Re: The Fed Cup final between Australia and France to be played in Perth on hard cou

Most of the nations in Fed Cup have one cannon and a few pea shooters. The Czech Rep, Russia, and the USA being the exceptions.
So, can Barty carry the whole country on her back? Can Barty carry the emotional load, or will her back break? The FO win should help her.

With a $20 ticket price and kids get in free, they should have a full house for the final.

Glad to see Perth getting some women’s tennis after the cancelation of Hopman Cup

The question is:

who is Australia's 2nd singles player?

What an occasion for Barty to play in front of a home crowd after winning her first Slam. I'm sure they'll have a full-house and a very exciting environment.

Hard court, so France have a chance against Clay player Barty.

Surprised they are not holding it in Brisbane after the success last time and the fact that it's Ash's hometown.

They could probably even hold it at Ken Rosewall arena now given that it's the final so they could probably fill it up (or come close), and Ash plays so well there (2 consecutive Sydney finals).

Hopefully there's space for Sharma on the team!

If Stosur has a good summer hardcourts swing, I’d go with her. Otherwise I’d just go with with whichever of Birrell or Gavrilova is in form.

Tomljanović doesn’t seem to be in the mix, so I am assuming that the ITF rejected her appeal against being cap-tied to Croatia.

I expect it’s partially with an eye to TV ratings. In summer, Perth is 3 hours behind the east coast which means afternoon matches are prime time viewing for the bulk of the population.

That's neither.

AFAIK Tomljanovic is ineligible.

Hence the question. If Stosur fails, then who? Sharma (just lost to Mladenovic)? Hon?

Sam shouldn’t play singles in Australia. At all.

Is Tomljanovic still playing for Australia or not?

Dokic&Kerber&Serena

Stosur - Venus - Hingis - Diyas - Jankovic - Niculescu - Barty - Sabalenka
Gavrilova - Wozniacki - Kvitova - Zvonareva - Osaka - CSN - Sevastova
Aga - Cibulkova - Lisicki - Bencic - Cornet - Halep - Mladenovic - Davenport - Ostapenko
Some level of love/fascination for Ivanovic, Giorgi, Azarenka, Sharapova, Makarova, Kuznetsova
