Samantha Stosur: 'It’s difficult to play Fed Cup every year'

Samantha Stosur wants to have a great 2018 season. The Australian 33-year-old player is ready to shine not only on the WTA Tour, starting with her country's swing in January, but also in team competitions. In a recent interview with the Courier Mail, the world no.

41 said she would like to play Fed Cup in 2018. 'I’d love to be a part of Fed Cup again — we have a fantastic team now and I’ll be talking to Alicia (Molik, the Australian captain),' Stosur said.

'We are working through a few things on how we can make it come together. I’ve thought about it (playing for Australia in 2018) all this year to be honest after I made the decision not to play this year. It’s difficult with scheduling to do it every single year.’ Australia has not won the Fed Cup title since 1974 and last reached a final in 1994.

In 2018, they will have a very competitive team with Stosur, and Ashleigh Barty, Casey Dellacqua and Daria Gavrilova. Stosur, who said she feels "refreshed", will start the 2018 season in Brisbane. ALSO READ: John Isner got married, Querrey and Johnson attended .
