Molik named new Aus Fed Cup captain



Former world No 8 Alicia Molik was named Australia's new Fed Cup captain on Friday in place of Dave Taylor, who has decided to focus on coaching former US Open champion Sam Stosur.

Australia have won the women's team competition seven times, second only to the United States, but their last win came in 1974 and they last reached the final back in 1993.

Under Taylor's seven-year reign they got back into the elite world group and the 31-year-old Molik's first tie in charge will be against champions Czech Republic in Europe next month.

"Dave has left big shoes to fill and I am really inspired by the challenge," Molik said in a statement. "It is an exciting time in Australian tennis and we have the talent in this team to produce some great results."
