away (starting from 4th February), when the Spanish Fed Cup team meets Russia’s team in the first round of the World Group.

title for their country. The competition is definitely tough, especially from the teams of Soviet Union but there is always a way out if the players stay cool, calm and capitalize on their specialities.

It will be interesting to see the agenda of 40-years-old retired tennis professional about 2012’s Fed Cup campaign. She has one of the most versatile and talented squad to play with but it all depends on the strategy and
player’s ability to handle the situations pressure with utmost calmness and guile.
1994 proved to be one of her best seasons as she managed to win two Grand Slam titles, including the US Open and her favourite clay-court championship, Roland Garros French Open. On her emphatic achievements in 1994, she
was proclaimed as the best woman tennis player of the year by the ESPN officials.
Vicario’s tennis experience will come into play and her achievements will soon be seen in the results of the tie against Russia. However, her career definitely vows to be on the most outstanding career in the history of tennis.
With 50 wins in singles category and 18 triumphs in doubles, she owns the best record in the Fed Cup history of Spain. Her outstanding career of multiple triumphs lasted for almost 16 years that saw five Fed Cup triumphs for Spain.
 Vicario seemed thrilled with her new responsibility and looked to provide results to the Spanish Tennis Federation in February.
