While the Monte Carlo Masters event occupied the majority of the ATP World Tour’s top competitors this week, the 18-19th April saw several of the WTA’s notable star compete for their respective nations in Fed Cup semi-final and playoff matches.

The main takeaway from the weekend is that both the Czech Republic and Russia are through to the final of the tournament, which will take place in November. It marked the fourth final in five years for the Czech team — a remarkable achievement.
