Incoming women’s tennis player Eliza Omirou will take to the courts this week with her home country of Cyprus in the 2017 Fed Cup, held June 13-17 in Chisinau, Moldova.
Competing in Group III of the Europe/Africa division, Cyprus is in Pool B along with Ireland, Iceland and Kenya. Cyrpus opened play on Tuesday (June 13) with a 3-0 victory over Kenya in which Omirou won both her singles match (6-0, 6-2) and her doubles match with partner Maria Siopacha (6-0, 6-0).
Having been a part of the team since 2014, Omirou’s six singles victories are the most in the history of Cyprus’ participation in the Fed Cup, while the incoming Demon Deacon also ranks tied for the country’s lead for most total wins with nine.
The top team from Group B will advance to face the winner of Group D (Moldova, Morocco, Algeria, Mozambique), with the winner being promoted to Group II of the Europe/Africa division in 2018.
