Four Sites Under Consideration To Host U.S. Fed Cup Quarterfinal

By Tennis Week

The U.S. Fed Cup team will carry the momentum from its first-round victory over Czech Republic last weekend as well as an 8-0 record against quarterfinal opponent Italy into the Fed Cup quarterfinals, scheduled for July 19-20th in the United States. The USTA announced today it is considering four sites to host the tie.

Three of the sites under consideration Shreveport, LA (8,000 seats), Boise, ID (5,500 seats) and St. Paul, MN (18,000 seats offer indoor venues. The fourth site, Washington D.C. (7,500 seats), is an outdoor venue.

The USTA must select a site by May 12th. U.S. Fed Cup captain Billie Jean King must select a four-player squad (a minimum of three players are required in Fed Cup play) by the Fourth of July.

DC would be a good choice. :D
