Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Belarus after Australian Open!!! In the US!

Serena agrees to play for USA for both ties.

Belarus has Azarenka, Govortsova, Poutchek, Kustova.

USA has Serena, McHale, Mattek-Sands, Huber, Venus, Vania.

USA gets the choice, I wonder where they'd choose. Probably Florida to appease to the Williams Sisters. Outdoor hardcourts.

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Belarus after Australian Open!!! In the US!

Probably Miami since Serena hasn't played there since 2009 and Venus since 2010. The only problem is that Azarenka is the MIAMI-GOAT

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Belarus after Australian Open!!! In the US!

Update: Worcester, Massachusetts is chosen to host the tie. Played in the DCU Center on February 4 - 5. Played on Indoor Hardcourts. Saturday starts at 1pm and Sunday starts at 12pm.

Serena is confirmed. McHale is pretty much in. Huber most likely for doubles. Leaving final spot for Venus, Vania, Beth, Irina, Sloane, Coco or Riske.

The predicament that USA is in. They are in World Group II.
-Win against Belarus, win World Group Play-off in April -> Back in World Group for 2013.
-Win against Belarus, lose World Group Play-off in April -> Back into World Group II for 2013.
-Lose against Belarus, win World Group II Play-off in April -> Back into World Group II for 2013.
-Lose against Belarus, lose World Group II Play-off in April -> USA goes into Americas Regulation

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Belarus after Australian Open!!! In the US!

I'm liking that it's indoors . I'm also liking that it's in Massachusetts as it's within driving distance, sort of ( about 8 hrs ) or a short plan ride from my house

Hopefully Serena is fully fit! I would love to see Serena, Christina and of course Vee if she's healthy for singles and then Liz team up with either Beth or Vania . I think having Min as one of the hitting partners would also be cool. I don't think she's ever experienced being a a hitting partner on the Fed Cup Team ?

GL, Team USA!

Cronin just tweeted that Venus is aiming to play this. I'm gonna be 5000000x louder than Lakeisha ever was.

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Belarus after Australian Open!!! In the US!

Based off this week's performances, I am expecting the team to be Serena (confirmed), Christina, Vania, and Liezel.

Venus is supposedly in talks to play. And I'd choose Vania over Beth.

Sloane? Not Vania? LOL. So excited, finally some good news this week after Venus withdrew from AO, Serena lost, Lisa/Liezel lost.

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread-Rena, Vee, Xtina, Liezel, PumpItUp to kick Belarussian

I feel bad for Vania Maybe still some bad blood between her and MJF?

Serena (22) & Venus (7)
