  • Tie Summary

    Germany advanced to its first Fed Cup final since 1992 with a hard-fought victory against Australia in Brisbane. On that occasion, the captain of today's German team, Barbara Rittner, helped her team to a second Fed Cup title.


    Andrea Petkovic opened the tie in style for Germany, with an impressive win against 2011 US Open champion Sam Stosur. Angelique Kerber then doubled the Germans' advantage with a blistering performance against Casey Dellacqua, in which she lost only one game. Kerber had a tougher match with Stosur in the third rubber, but eventually prevailed in three sets to send the Germans through to a final against 2011 and 2012 champions Czech Republic.
