Kvitova to lead Czechs



World No 8 Petra Kvitova, dumped out in the second round at the Australian Open, will lead the Czech Republic in their Fed Cup title defence when they take on Australia in a first round tie next month.

Czech captain Petr Pala will stick with the same squad that lifted the crown for a second straight year in November, including Lucie Safarova, Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka.

"I decided on a proven, winning team," Pala said in a statement.

The Czechs will begin their attempt at a third straight title in front of their home fans in the northeastern city ofOstrava on February 9-10.
