Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Play-Off vs. Sweden - Serena Lashes Larsson for 1-1 t

I'd prefer Varvs being used. That way if it comes down to doubles, Venus is fresher.

Interesting to note (from Stubbsy) that Vee was the one player not on the team bench watching Serena.... perhaps an indication that she went home early to rest and that she's going to be saddling up for singles tomorrow?

But I guess that could apply too even if she were just prepping for the dubs.

That's exactly what I was thinking . But your right, it could also mean that Vee needs additional rest no matter what. I hate to think that way, but this could also just be prep for her doubles match. In any case, I hope she's at her best for her match(s) tomorrow!

I think it'll be Serena vs Sofia; Varvara vs JoLa; Serena or Sloane/Venus vs Sweden.

Venus won, 6-3 7-5.

USA gave a walkover in the doubles. A doctor had to confirm that 3 members of the US Team were injured and unable to compete. Of course that's probably just a bunch of bullshit....

Regardless, USA wins 3-2.

That's ok. I'm sure Sweden didn't want to play either

I'm still recovering from those last few games with Vee She did an amazing job fighting for the win when she could barely bend her back to serve. What a fighter

Drew Italy. USA gets the choice of venue. I'd love to be to see them choose grass. I mean indoor/outdoor hardcourts against Vinci and Errani is in no way an advantage. But we all know they won't choose grass.
