No way Serena would play even if healthy.
UGH!!!!! I want another Fed Cup title
And I truthfully do not believe Vee's back is injured. She withdrew from Paris because of that EleVen promotion and then Fed Cup to avoid some shitty losses on clay to the Italians to shake her lack of confidence even more. Back injury that you withdraw 2 weeks early? Mhm.
Sloane and Varvara....there's a slight chance. Both like clay. Both can hit through the Italians. We shall see....but certainly won't get my hopes up.
