Fed Cup: Ukraine Narrowly Misses Playoffs

Issue 76, February 2015.
Ukrainian women’s tennis has a long and rich history, and yet its Fed Cup team – which sees its top female players take on top women’s players from other nations – has yet to find sustained success. Despite Ukrainian players regularly featuring in the world’s top 100 players, including the likes of the Bondarenko sisters (Alona, Kateryna, and Valeria), Tatiana Perebiynis, Viktoriya Kutuzova, Elena Tatarkova, Yuliana Fedak – and more recently, Elina Svitolina and Lesia Tsurenko – Ukraine’s Fed Cup team has only once qualified for the prestigious World Group stage in the yearly Fed Cup tournament, and that was back in 2010.
