The Spanish tennis federation said Saturday that Martinez is replacing Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, who resigned last December.

The 40-year-old Martinez became the only Spanish woman to win the Wimbledon singles title in 1994.

Federation president Jose Escanuela said ''Conchita is a legend of Spanish tennis, and it is convenient that people who have given so much to our sport have the chance to continue helping.''

Spain hosts a first-round series tie with Ukraine in World Group II on Feb. 9-10 in Alicante.
