BRATISLAVA, Slovakia - Australian Open finalist Dominika Cibulkova will open for Slovakia in the Fed Cup first-round tie against Andrea Petkovic of Germany.

Cibulkova lost to Li Na 7-6 (3), 6-0 in her first major final, which saw her jump to No. 13 in the WTA rankings.

Friday's draw also pitted Daniela Hantuchova for Slovakia against No. 9-ranked Angelique Kerber in the second singles on Saturday on an indoor hard-court at Bratislava's National Tennis Center.

After Sunday's reverse singles, Hantuchova is expected to team up with Magdalena Rybarikova in doubles against Julia Goerges and Anna-Lena Groenefeld.

The teams split their previous two encounters: Slovakia won the 2003 first-round clash, while Germany claimed victory in the second round in 1994.

Slovakia won the Fed Cup in 2002, while Germany's last triumph was back in 1992.
