Former No. 1 Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario has been selected captain of Spain's Fed Cup team.

Sanchez-Vicario agreed a two-year deal. Her first match will be against Russia in the first round of the World Group on Feb. 4-5.

Sanchez-Vicario won a U.S. Open title and three French Open trophies during her career. She guided Spain to all five of its Fed Cup triumphs during the 1990s.

The 40-year-old holds Spanish records for overall wins (72), singles wins (50) and - partnering Conchita Martinez - doubles victories (18) in a Fed Cup career that spanned 16 years until 2002.

Sanchez-Vicario's appointment comes a day after the Spanish tennis federation selected Alex Corretja as captain for the Davis Cup team.
