Audio interview

It wasn’t long ago that Flavia Pennetta and Co had the trophy in their hands for the second year in a row, having once again defeated USA in the final, this time in San Diego.

And the festivities didn’t end when the players left the court, as Pennetta tells Chris Bowers after being asked how the team celebrated their landmark win.

But it will be back to business for the Italians when they travel to Hobart to face Australia in a tricky Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group first round tie on 5-6 February.

The Aussies rely heavily on Samantha Stosur, the world No. 5, while Italy’s settled team includes both Pennetta and reigning Roland Garros champion Francesca Schiavone, which makes the visitors marginal favourites.
