Australia snub Stosur for Fed Cup singles, pick Tomljanovic

  • Ajla Tomljanovic has beaten out Sam Stosur for Australia’s second singles berth

Barty will then face world No.45 Caroline Garcia as Australia chase their eights Fed Cup title and first in 45 years.

Stosur is due to partner Barty in the doubles rubber.

It's been 45 years since seven-time champions Australia last held the Fed Cup trophy aloft, with the Aussies failing to reach the final since 1993. "Now we're here and we've got this opportunity".

"Playing singles or not playing singles, I'm enjoying every single second".

"We have been there before, whereas the Australian girls haven't".

"We practice often together and we know each other really well", Mladenovic said.

Peaking at World No. 4 in singles in 2011, Stosur shocked the world that same year when she took down Serena Williams to secure her first Grand Slam title at the US Open. She however is concerned about one player in the French roster - Kristina Mladenovic.

Court wants the same recognition afforded to Rod Laver's 1969 grand slam anniversary at the Australian Open earlier this year and says she won't return to Melbourne Park unless formally welcomed back.

However, her work at Fed Cup level can not be ignored.

It will mark the last Fed Cup final played under the current format, with an overhaul next year seeing 12 nations compete in a six-day event in Budapest. Her work was acknowledged by the ITF, which presented her with an award ahead of the final draw on Friday.

Each equally Barty, who gained final weekend's WTA Finals in China, and Stosur and Mladenovic/Garcia acquired a few-established dwell fifth doubles matches in April's semifinals to ship their worldwide locations to the last word.

In contrast, Tomljanovic has had a good year and spent most of it inside the world's top 50.

"I think Australians in general, we have such a rich history across our sport and I'm just trying to do the best that I can, just to do what I do, I'm very lucky and very privileged to have the year that I've had and we're really looking forward to finishing off as a team, all of our 2019 seasons".

Should she win 2 singles matches, she will become the 10th player to complete a flawless year in Fed Cup singles since 1995.

"We know that during a Fed Cup weekend there are a lot of emotions and physically tough matches, so we know we have a lot of options for Sunday", he added. "I've had some great moments in my career individually, but I think it's something very different playing as part of a team and as part of a competition like this, it would definitely be right up with one of the highlights of my career and something I'd always remember".
