Its certainly an exciting time for women’s tennis in Australia, not only is there a new generation of up and coming players making inroads on the professional stage – Australia have reached the 2019 Fed Cup Final, for the first time since 1993! With a large thanks to Australia’s number 1 ranked women’s player, Ash Barty, and of course 2011 US Open champion, Sam Stosur. The pair managed to edge out Belarus in the Fed Cup semi-final, of which came down to the doubles match – consisting of 3 high quality sets to determine which nation would progress to the final! The outcome – Australia have booked in a 2019 Fed Cup Final on home soil and will be hosting a French team who prevailed against a solid Romanian outfit! To break the Fed Cup drought in front of a home crowd will be an extremely special feat for the Australian women’s Fed Cup team – and a memorable experience as a spectator!
