Perth to host Fed Cup in November
Western Australia has been named as the host for the Fed Cup final. The International Tennis Federation announced the final would be held on home soil after team Australia, captained by WA's Alicia Molik and led by Australia's No.1 tennis player and recent Roland Garros champion Ashleigh Barty, defeated Belarus in the semi-final in April.
Perth is one of three cities to host the new ATP competition, which is set to attract around 100 of the world's best male tennis players who will compete for 750 highly coveted ATP ranking points and $22 million in prize money.
"The more we continue to secure major events like these in Perth, the more it helps boost visitor numbers and tourism spend in Western Australia, which helps grows the economy and creates more jobs." said premier Mark McGowan.
