Leylah Annie Fernandez will lead the Canadian charge on the opening day of the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Qualifier against Switzerland after world No. 6 Bianca Andreescu failed in her fitness race to compete in singles in Biel.
Seventeen-year-old Fernandez will start for the visitors against Jil Teichmann after the Swiss No. 2's name was drawn out to compete first on Friday.
The second singles match on the opening day will see world No. 5 Belinda Bencic playing Eugenie Bouchard. The Swiss has won both their previous encounters but the two players haven't faced off for five years.
Bencic will face Fernandez in the first match of the day on Saturday, with Teichmann scheduled to play Bouchard in the battle of the No. 2s.
The doubles, should it be required, currently sees Viktorija Golubic and Stefanie Voegele taking on Andreescu and Gabriela Dabrowski.
Wonder what they mean by 'two new singles champs"?
