The star will lead Team Russia against Spain in the event.
The former world number one will be the spearhead of the Russian squad against Team Spain in the first round tie of the Fed Cup to be played in Moscow in February.
She will compete at the Australian Open before heading to Moscow’s Olympic Arena on the first weekend in February.
“Not sure if everyone knows, but I will be playing Federation Cup for Russia versus Spain after Australia,” Sharapova said on her official website.
“So glad we get to play in Moscow! I will have four weeks in the Australian summer and then a week in the Moscow winter.”
The 24-year-old was replaced for the reverse singles as Russia went on to win the tie 3-2 en route to their final defeat to the Czech Republic in Moscow in November.
