  • Tie Summary

    Slovak Republic have won the only previous meeting between these two nations, upsetting the Spanish at home with a 3-1 victory in the 2002 Final – the only time that the Slovak’s have lifted the trophy.

    Fed Cup legend Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario will be looking to captain her Spanish side back to the World Group having lost to Russia in the first round in her first tie in the role. Injury and illness to her top players Anabel Medina Garrigues and Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez made the already daunting prospect of the trip to Russia even tougher with the only bright spot a victory for Carla Suarez Navarro over Nadia Petrova.

    The Slovak Republic came through to the play-off with a victory at home against France having slipped back into World Group II for 2012 after only a one year stint at the highest level. Daniela Hantuchova added to her impressive service record during the tie winning her 30th and 31st matches in her 11th year representing Slovak Republic.
