An Investigation of Home Disadvantage in Fed Cup Tennis
Journal of Sport Behavior
Occurrence of the home disadvantage in Fed Cup tennis matches was examined by analyzing the outcome of Fed Cup finals matches from 1995 to 2010. There was no significant home disadvantage when Matches 1 and 2 were compared with Matches 4 and 5. However, there was a significant home disadvantage when Matches 1 and 2 were compared with Match 5. These findings are compared with those from a study examining the home team disadvantage in men's professional tennis.
