Sto­sur, 33, made her­self unavail­able for the Fed Cup this year to free up her sched­ule, an ob­jec­tive ru­ined by a hand in­jury that side­lined her from Wim­ble­don and the US Open.

But with the Gold Coaster, ranked No.41, one of three Aus­tralian women in the yearend top 50, the pos­si­bil­i­ties of suc­cess with Ash Barty, Daria Gavrilova and Casey Del­lac­qua is en­tic­ing. Sto­sur is step­ping up train­ing in Syd­ney for her sum­mer cam­paign, which starts at the Bris­bane In­ter­na­tional from De­cem­ber 31.

“I’d love to be a part of Fed Cup again – and I’ll be talk­ing to Alicia (Mo­lik, the Aus­tralian cap­tain),’’ Sto­sur said.
