A welcome change for the players during preparations for the difficult first round tie in Braunschweig’s Volkswagen Halle on Saturday and Sunday was the visit to the Autostadt in Wolfsburg at the beginning of the Fed Cup week. In the Porsche Pavilion, the players Andrea Petkovic, Tatjana Maria, Mona Barthel, Laura Siegemund and Anna-Lena Grönefeld plus team captain Jens Gerlach admired the fascinating architecture of the building. Next on the program was a special photo shoot.
