  • Tie Summary

    It’s all square between Australia and Ukraine with both nations having won one of their two previous Fed Cup ties.

    It was the southern hemisphere side who got the better of their European opposition at the same stage of the competition last year. Anastasia Rodionova and Samantha Stosur led from the front as Australia whitewashed Ukraine 5-0 in Kharkiv.

    Australia is fighting to remain in the top flight after losing their first round encounter with reigning champions Italy. Meanwhile, Ukraine clinched a decisive doubles rubber victory on Swedish soil in their World Group II tie for a place in the play-offs for the fourth successive year.
