Fed Cup: a very heavy task ahead for Canada

Look at this article

The canadian Fed Cup will have to change again in hostile territory, since it will be measured to the Czech Republic on his land at a meeting of qualifying for the world Group I, which will take place on 20 and 21 April.

After having defeated the netherlands 4 to 0 in a duel of the first round of world Group II, held in Bois-le-Duc, the players of the maple leaf flag will be hard to do against a country focus on Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova, ranked respectively second and fifth in the world.

The order is significant for Canada, which has never beaten the Czechs in six appointments. His next rivals occupy the first rank in the ranking of the Fed Cup. Team captain Heidi El Tabakh is on his side in 11th place. It will be a first participation in the national training, the qualifications of the world Group I for 2015.

The precise location of the confrontation and the chosen surface remain to be determined. The winning nation of this clash will be part of world Group I in 2020.
