It will be Australia's first final since 1993 and a first home final in 41 years. 

Australia's road to the final is a monumental one having overcome 18-time Champions the USA before defeating Belarus in April. The results came after a four-year wait to return to the World Group.

For their opponents, France, they have won two Fed Cups (1997 and 2003) and were runners up in 2004, 2005 and 2016. 

“I’m so excited we have the chance to play the Fed Cup Final here in Perth, and showcase the very best of women’s tennis right here in my hometown,” Australian Fed Cup captain Alicia Molik said. 

“Our semifinal win was momentous, and it’s a credit to the team in Ash, Dasha [Gavrilova], Sam [Stosur] and Priscilla [Hon] and their work ethic and passion.

“I have no doubt in my mind that we are capable of winning.”

The Fed Cup is the world’s largest international team competition for women, with 108 nations competing in 2019. 

The Final will be played between November 9-10.
