The Fed Cup World Group Play-off will be returning to Delray Beach this April for the third time in tournament history. The Delray Beach Stadium and Tennis Center will host the event as it returns to the state of Florida for the first time since 2007. Team U.S.A. is undefeated when the tournament is played in the state of Florida. They swept Belgium in 2005 and 2007, both played in Delray, and they defeated Australia in 1995 when the event was held in Aventura.

The winner of the best-of-five match series will advance to the 2014 World Group and have a chance to compete of the Fed Cup title next year. Team U.S.A. will host Sweden and will mark the fifth matchup between the two countries in Fed Cup competition with the U.S. leading the series 3-1.

Matches will be played on April 20 and 21 and while the U.S. team has not been announced yet, Palm Beach Gardens residents Venus and Serena Williams are likely to participate.
