Fed Cup Final 2018 Preview: Women’s Tennis Powerhouses USA and CZE Meet Again

The Fed Cup Final 2018 will pit the defending champions United States against the 2016 winner Czech Republic for the best country in women's tennis.

Only two nations remain to battle it out on November 10 and 11 for the 2018 Fed Cup title.

Teams representing the Czech Republic from Europe and the United States of America, who both topped the eight-nation World Group, will meet at the indoor O2 Arena in Prague for the title of best nation in professional women’s tennis. The Czechs, the 2016 champions, will look to reclaim the title from the Americans, the reigning world champions.

Here are some key facts about the upcoming tie:

US Dominated Czech Republic for a Long Time

The Czech Republic is currently on a losing streak against the United States, stretching from even before the Republic existed.

In 12 meetings between the two countries in the Fed Cup, the Americans lead the Czechs by 10 wins. Eight of those US victories came in the past eight matches in the tournament starting from the 1986 final, more or less seven years before the dissolution of Czechoslovakia.

Nevertheless, these two finalists are the most dominant nations in Fed Cup history. The United States team has won 18 championships, the latest victory coming from last year’s tournament. Meanwhile, the Czech Republic follows second with 10 wins—half of which they won as Czechoslovakia.

The Czechs are the most dominant in this decade, winning the five in the last seven tournaments.
