Sloane Stephens - Feb. 1

It is always fun to be a part of the Fed Cup Team and I am really glad to be a part of it again this week! Christina and I have been friends for a really long time so it is good to see her here and Liezel is like a mom to us and we always have fun together so it is really nice to back on the team together again.

Serena and Venus are on the team for the first time since I have played Fed Cup. Before this week I knew them enough to just to say ‘Hi or ‘Bye’ or ‘How’s it going?’ But they are really nice girls and I am really looking forward to playing with them this week and learning a lot from watching how they prepare and practice. It will be a good experience and a good time for all of us to hang out together and be a team again so I am looking forward to it.

We have gotten a lot of things done in practice the past two days, which is always nice. I hit with Liezel and Christina the first day, doing some 2-on-1s and then I hit with Venus for the first time this morning, which was awesome. Venus and Serena are definitely two of the best players who have ever played tennis so just to be around them, see them play, hang out with them, it is a really big thing. It will be a fun week, learning and having them here is great for the team so we are excited!

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Sloane blog, Venus & Team pics, Xtina practice pics

Looks like Liezel's legs in the background, practicing her serve.



Why all the Christina practice pics and no one else?


Yakimova and Kustova are in Worcester practicing. Not sure about Olga and Vika.

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Sloane blog, Practice Pics of Everyone

Christina McHale - Feb. 2

I practiced with Serena this morning, which is still a little odd to say, but it is cool. She has been really nice and it is really good practice for me. I think every day I am getting more used to the indoor hardcourt here. For me, I think it is medium speed, a little bit fast. I am playing also on an indoor hardcourt at the tournament in Paris next week and the similar surface and conditions is one of the reasons I decided to play an indoor tournament after Fed Cup.

It can be a big switch from playing outside in the heat to indoors but at least last week I was training at home at the USTA Billie Jean King National Training Center in New York so it is not like I came right from the heat of Australia here.

Yesterday we had a tennis clinic for kids here in Worcester, which is fun for me. I have only two or three other ones like that. It is fun because when we practice it so serious, so it is nice to do something related to tennis that is just relaxed. The team had a question-and-answer period with the kids after we hit and some of the questions were funny, like someone asked me what was my favorite subject in school. A few were disappointed to hear it wasn’t math but history instead. They were all cute and some of them were really getting the hang of hitting the ball and playing really well.

I will also add that I am so excited and psyched about our new team tracksuits. They changed the color from white to navy (with red and white stripes down the arms and legs) and they have the coolest sleeves, the cuffs are fitted, and are by far the best tracksuits of any country.

We all went to dinner together last night and tonight is the official dinner but the matches are getting closer, so we need to be doing our best to prepare and stay focused!
