Serena Williams pulls out of Fed Cup Final

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP)—The U.S. Tennis Association says Serena Williams has pulled out of the team that will face Italy in the Fed Cup final.

USTA spokesman Chris Widmaier tells The Associated Press on Saturday that Williams informed U.S. Fed Cup captain Mary Joe Fernandez she won’t play in the Nov. 7-8 matches.

Vania King replaces Williams on the roster, joining surprise U.S. Open quarterfinalist Melanie Oudin, Liezel Huber and Alexa Glatch.

Fernandez had announced this week Williams would play Fed Cup for the first time since 2007.

Williams leads active women with 11 Grand Slam singles titles and is unbeaten in Fed Cup singles play. She is in this weekend’s semifinals at the season-ending WTA championships in Doha, Qatar.

Omg. We'll need SuperGlatch, SuperMelanie and Vania/Liezel to win the doubles. Gah!

So much for playing if she's not in a wheel chair

Re: Serena pulls out of Fed Cup Final

Too bad. She's had quite a long season by her standards and obviously the body is feeling it.

And I'd rather see her on the Jonathan Ross show.

Re: Serena pulls out of Fed Cup Final

On a sidenote, does anyone know why Venus isn't playing FC final?

Re: Serena pulls out of Fed Cup Final

Probably since she still has a lingering knee injury. And the factors of clay and the name Flavia Pennetta.
