Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Final #28!!! vs. Italy: Coco to open on Saturday!

Just so everyone can be on the draw sheet probably. In no way would Mel actually play the doubles if it were live.

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Final #28!!! vs. Italy: Coco to open on Saturday!

November 5 - MJF

By far this was the best draw we have had since I have been captain. We all become little kids again. What a great idea to have it at Sea World. Being able to see the whales and play with the dolphins, it is just a treat and a lot of fun.

My children, Nicholas and Isabella, came to Sea World today as well. It is their first time at Fed Cup and they are very excited to be here. They are having a great time and enjoyed petting the dolphins.

I decided on the lineup for the weekend last night. I went through the matchups, all the possibilities and who had to play who on the first day. Bethanie has been playing well all week; she played in the final in Quebec and is feeling pretty confident so I put her in as our No. 1. As No. 1, she plays Pennetta, who is the No. 2 for Italy this year. Schiavone is their No. 1 now so we were trying to think between Melanie and CoCo who matched up better against her for the first day. We thought CoCo, being taller, handled the spin a little bit better and maybe get some free points on her serve. Had it been Pennetta the one we were more worried about, it might have been Melanie to play the first day instead. That is we are going to start but things can always change.

CoCo was excited to hear she was going to play tomorrow. From day one, I tell my players you have to prepare like you are playing. Even when we have young ones with us, I tell them the same thing. So CoCo was ready for that possibility.

The week goes fast and we have had such a good time in San Diego. It is long days on the court with practice hours but at the same time, it seems to zoom by. We are ready; we are excited to start playing tomorrow and see how well everything goes.
