  • Tie Summary

    Australia lead 4-1 in the head-to-head series between these two nations. The Aussies won their first meeting in 1966 and then three times in the 2000s. The sole triumph for the Swiss arrived in 1983.

    Switzerland were promoted from Europe/Africa Zone Group I last season. They came through the week-long event in Israel before defeating Sweden 4-1 in the World Group II play-offs. That tie was also significant as it marked the final Fed Cup appearance for Swiss stalwart Patty Schnyder, who subsequently announced her retirement from the competition.

    Australia were surprisingly relegated in 2011 after slumping to a shock 3-2 loss against Ukraine in the World Group play-offs in Melbourne. The Aussies haven’t lost a tie on away ground since 2008, although it should be said that the majority of their fixtures over the last few years have been at home.
