I really hope Davenport and Serena pull out of Fed Cup next week, for their own sake
If they want to go and support the team that's one thing, but I really hope they keep their asses on the sidelines. We don't need them for this tie and it's only going to make their injury worse and have it take longer to heal. We can send in our B-squad (maybe even C-squad) and still come out with a clean sweep against Flipkens, Callens, and Butkieswicz, none of whom are anywhere near the top 300.
If Serena and Davenport both pull out, it would be Venus Williams and Amy Frazier for the starting lineup (Lisa Raymond is a possibility as well), and then Raymond/Morariu or Navratilova/Morariu for the doubles. That will be far more than enough. Let's hope Lindsay and Serena get rid of their stubborn ways and do what's good for their health!
