Fed Cup: Australia hosts Netherlands at Wollongong in April

SYDNEY — Tennis Australia said Friday that Wollongong, south of Sydney, will host Australia's Fed Cup World Group playoff against the Netherlands on April 21-22.

The match will be played indoors on a hard court at the Wollongong Entertainment Centre.

Australia, which leads the head-to-head matches with the Netherlands 8-2, will be looking to return to the World Group for the first time since 2015. Australia beat Ukraine 3-2 at home in the first round in February.

The Netherlands will be attempting to retain their spot in the top eight for the fourth consecutive year after the Dutch lost to the United States, the 2017 Fed Cup champions, 3-1, also in February.
