  • Tie Summary

    Germany and Serbia will meet for the first time in Fed Cup as the hosts look to capitalise on the momentum of their World Group II first round win over France with a speedy return to the top tier of the competition, while Serbia bid to maintain their World Group status in 2014.

    Germany eased past France in the World Group II first round after wrapping up the first three rubbers without dropping so much as a set. Two wins for Julia Goerges and a win for Sabine Lisicki saw Germany guarantee their passage into the play-offs, before Alize Cornet and Kristina Mladenovic grabbed a consolation point for France in the doubles.

    Hindered by the absences of Ivanovic and Jankovic due to injury, Serbia is facing relegation after losing 3-2 to 2002 champions Slovak Republic in their World Group first round tie in Nis. Serbia were given a glimmer of hope when Dominika Cilbulkova had to retire with cramp while on the cusp of victory against Vesna Dolonc, but Serbian hopes of a revival were short lived as Jana Cepelova and Hantuchova won the reverse singles rubbers to put the tie beyond reach of the hosts.
