Tennis Signee Represents Country in Prestigious Fed Cup

Despoina Vogasari

April 17, 2013

ULCINJ, Montenegro - University of Houston women's tennis signee Despoina Vogasari is currently representing her native country of Greece in the 2013 Federation Cup, viewed as the top tournament in the sport between national teams.

"Representing your country is the highest honor possible in sport and in tennis," head coach Patrick Sullivan said. "Fed Cup is behind only the Olympics in terms of achievement and prestige. When I first met Depi, she told me that playing Fed Cup was one of her goals and I'm proud of her for having accomplished that goal in such a short period of time. She is honored and excited to be selected to the team and I know she will be a great ambassador of both Greece and the University as she competes in Montenegro."

Vogasari earned the honor of representing her country for the first time in Group B of the 2013 Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone Group II, which is one of two pools in the Europe/Africa zone. Four teams (Greece, South Africa, Montenegro, Lithuania) compete in a round robin competition, with the top team proceeding to their respective section of the playoffs.

This year marks the 51st Fed Cup, which was launched in 1963 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the International Tennis Federation (ITF).

The Athens native holds the highest ranking of any junior player in Greece and is the highest rated player to sign with Houston in the last 20 seasons, as the Cougars' 2013 signing class was tabbed as the sixth-best class in the nation by TennisRecruiting.net.
