The Australian Fed Cup team warmed up for this weekend's Fed Cup tie against Germany, playing some snowball in Stuttgart.

The Aussie squad of Samantha Stosur, Casey Dellacqua, Olivia Rogowska and Jarmila Gajdosova transitioned from the Australian summer to European winter, showing their versatility on all surfaces.

The players will move to hard court when Australia faces host Germany in this weekend's Fed Cup World Group first-round tie.

A trio of Top 30 players — No. 10 Angelique Kerber, No. 12 Andrea Petkovic, No. 28 Sabine Lisicki — and No. 69 Julia Goerges lead Germany. Kerber and Petkovic were singles starters for the German squad that scored a 3-1 victory over host Australia in the 2014 Fed Cup semifinals in Brisbane last April.

The British Fed Cup team took a different warm-up approach in Budapest.
