Fed Cup semi: Stosur to lead Australia vs Germany
BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Samantha Stosur will lead Australia in its Fed Cup semifinal against Germany beginning April 19 in Brisbane.
Australia captain Alicia Molik said Wednesday that Casey Dellacqua, Ashleigh Barty and Storm Sanders were also in the team for the two-day contest at Pat Rafter Arena.
Australia and Germany have met 12 times in Fed Cup, with Australia holding an 8-4 advantage.
It is the first time Australia has reached the semifinals since 1993, and 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of Australia’s last win when Evonne Goolagong led the team to victory in 1974.
The Czech Republic will host Italy at Ostrava on the same weekend in the other 2014 semifinal. The semifinal winners will play Nov. 8-9 in the final.
