1993 Federation Cup World Group

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The World Group was the highest level of Federation Cup competition in 1993. Thirty-two nations competed in a five-round knockout competition from 19–25 July. Germany was the defending champion, but they were shocked in the first round by Australia, in what was the first time in the event's history where the defending team was defeated without winning a match. The defeat was especially significant as it involved a loss for then singles World No. 1 Steffi Graf at the hands of Nicole Provis. Prior to this match, Graf had defeated Provis in straight at their four meetings,[1] and had never lost a Fed Cup tie.[2]

The Australian team reached the final, but they were defeated by the Spanish team, in what was their third consecutive final.
