To choose the mascot is not the primary goal of the contest. The main thing is to draw attention to the event, to stir the interest of the public and get Belarusians involved in the preparation of the Second European Games, Belarus' First Deputy Information Minister Igor Lutsky said.
Belarusian tennis star Tatiana Poutchek was presented with the Fed Cup Award of Excellence by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and the International Tennis Hall of Fame (ITHF) at the 2017 Fed Cup Final in Minsk on 12 November.
Belarus played their maiden Fed Cup final, after beating the Netherlands (4-1) and Switzerland (3-2) this season. Despite the defeat to the United States, the Belarusian players showed their fighting spirit and a good game.
