Porsche Team Germany qualifies for Fed Cup finals
An impressive performance has handed Porsche Team Germany a 4-0 win against Brazil and a place in the first ever Fed Cup finals to be staged in Budapest.
Day 2 Led by Laura Siegemund as the No. 1, Porsche Team Germany produced an impressive team performance in Florianopolis, the capital of the southern state of Santa Catarina. In claiming her first ever Fed Cup victory on Friday, the 2017 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix winner beat Teliana Pereira to give the team a 1-0 lead which Tatjana Maria then doubled against Gabriela Cé.
Barbara Rittner, Head of Women’s Tennis at the German Tennis Association added, A big compliment to the whole team. It always sounds easy to travel to Brazil as the favourite, but in the end every singles match is unbelievably difficult. Congratulations to Laura Siegemund who was perfect here in securing two points. And all the other players have done a good job.
