Samantha Stosur is relishing the prospect of Australia being back in the big time, following last year’s promotion to the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group for the first time since 2004.
And it doesn’t come much bigger than facing the defending champions at home in the first round. That’s the situation the Aussies will be in when Italy travels to Hobart on 5-6 February.
Stosur is the lynchpin of the Australian team and loves the responsibility that comes with the role, but, as she explains to Chris Bowers, she knows that a team effort is required to humble Italy.
