Disheartening news won't keep Huber down for long

By Bonnie D. Ford
Updated: January 17, 2008


MELBOURNE, Australia -- World No. 1 doubles player Liezel Huber won't be on the Fed Cup team that will play Germany on Feb. 2-3 in La Jolla, Calif., but the fact that she's not on the list won't necessarily jeopardize the new U.S. citizen's ability to compete in the Beijing Olympics.

Huber told ESPN.com that Fed Cup captain Zina Garrison called to give her the bad news Thursday. "It's hard not to take personally, I'm very disappointed, but I thanked her for considering me," said Huber, who had asked for early notification so she could plan her schedule with doubles partner Cara Black of Zimbabwe. "It's a shame because I would have been the proudest American there."

Players seeking eligibility for the U.S. Olympic team have to make themselves available for Fed Cup play in the period leading up to the Summer Games, and Huber has met that standard. Her No. 1 ranking is helpful but does not guarantee her an Olympic slot.

The only player officially selected for the team thus far is Lindsay Davenport, although it's widely assumed that veteran doubles player and Fed Cup stalwart Lisa Raymond will be chosen. Davenport and Raymond have played doubles previously on the WTA Tour. Garrison also is trying to persuade the Williams sisters to play. If they decline, the next highest-ranked U.S. singles player is No. 46 Meilen Tu, who played Fed Cup for the first time last year and lost her only match to Russia.

Garrison must announce her roster 10 days before the event. Fed Cup and Davis Cup captains often shy away from selecting two doubles specialists because it means they have no backup in case a singles player is injured, although the Bryan brothers altered that equation on the reigning champion U.S. Davis Cup team.

Born and raised in South Africa, the 31-year-old Huber, whose maiden name was Horn, came to the United States at age 15 to train at the Van Der Meer Tennis Academy in Hilton Head, S.C., with not much more than the clothing on her back. "Everyone has an opportunity in America," she said. "I mean, I came here with a suitcase."

Two years later, she began dating her future husband and current coach Tony Huber. They married eight years ago and now live outside Houston.

Huber became a U.S. citizen last July. Her native country did not send a tennis team to the Olympics in 2004, she said, and does not plan to this time either. "I'd be so honored to play for a first-world country on a big stage," Huber said. "I can't imagine what that would be like. [The South African] Fed Cup team plays in a lower group. We pay our own air tickets."

Huber and Black took over the No. 1 ranking last season, while Raymond's partner, Samantha Stosur of Australia, was sidelined by illness. Raymond, currently ranked No. 3 in doubles, lost her first-round match Thursday with partner Francesca Schiavone.

In an interview two weeks ago, Raymond expressed some reservations about having Huber replace another U.S. player who had played Fed Cup in the past.

Having both Liezel and Lisa would be risky. What if something were to happen to Lindsay or Ashley. And then who do you go with for singles? Lisa has priority over Liezel. Sorry.

I read in another tennis forum that Huber doesn't have a very good relationship with Raymond. I'd rather like to watch Liezel in the team than Lisa. Although that I liked and still liking the team Davenport/Raymond.

Liezel = whatever

Let the team of Davenport, Lisa Raymond, Serena Williams, Venus Williams go. They are far more talented in singles and doubles than Liezel is
