Fed Cup Live
The Fed Cup will start out its season with the first round matchups where the world's currently best eight teams will compete for the four semifinal places.
The four pairings will be Romania v Czech Republic, Germany v Switzerland, France v Italy and Russia v Netherlands. The seeded teams were the Czechs, Germans, Italians and Russians, but out of these four the Czech Republic and Italy will have to earn the victory on foreign soil. The choice of ground went to Romania, Germany, France and Russia. The reigning Fed Cup winner is the Czech Republic who not only won the last two trophies but four out of the last five as well, making them the far and away biggest favorite to win and complete the three-peat. With that said, Romania with Halep could turn out to be a dangerous opponent, especially with them being able to select the venue which will probably a stadium with a clay court.
Petra Kvitova is an excellent hard court and grass player (two-time Wimbledon champion) and although she is proficient on the dust, not nearly as well versed there than on quicker surfaces.
