STUTTGART, GERMANY: Listen to reflection from this weekend's World Group play-off tie which saw Australia trounce the favourites Germany to secure their place in the elite eight nations.

David Taylor talks of his team's performance this weekend, how they will celebrate and what Australia must do to be competitive in next year's World Group. Samantha Stosur is delighted with her performance this weekend and what it means for her season ahead of a busy summer.

Barbara Rittner discusses her selection choices, in particular why she decided to play Andrea Petkovic, and how disappointed all the girls are for failing to win a set in any of the live rubbers in front of a home crowd.

Andrea Petkovic explains how she was not expected to be called up for a live rubber this weekend after being out for the majority of this year with a back injury.
