Fanning in team South Canterbury tennis player Emily Fanning has been confirmed in New Zealand's four person Federation Cup team which will travel to Kazakhstan in February.
It was good news for the 17-year-old who has been struggling to overcome a strained hip which kept her out of the NZ Championships a fortnight ago and meant she was unable to push her claims for and ASB Classic spot.
The NZ female Junior Tennis Player of the Year will be joined in the team by NZ's No 1 Marina Erakovic, Whanganui's Emma Hayman and Auckland's Abigail Guthrie. The Federation Cup will take place from February 4-10.
