Whatever. I'll try to grab a few strands on Sunday and send them to him.

Is there any confirmation that Venus will take the second slot if we're tied 1-1?

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread-Christina to open against Azarenka at 1pm! Serena to fo

MJF blog - February 3

I feel good about Christina starting off tomorrow against Azarenka. She has had a lot of experience in the last year and half, she has played a few Fed Cup matches and has had a great week of practice. Obviously it is a tough matchup against Azarenka but hopefully she can make the most of her strengths, find some weaknesses on Azarenka’s side and we will see what happens but I am looking forward to it.

On Sunday, Serena plays Azarenka, who she has a good record against, and the intensity, desire and will are always there with Serena. Azarenka is coming in with a lot of confidence from winning in Australia, Serena has not played that many matches yet but she looks good in practice, she is moving better, and I think her ankle is starting to feel better. We will see. It is going to be a big match, an important match but I have a lot of confidence in Serena.

We were expecting Govortsova to play in the second singles spot for Belarus. I didn’t know her that well but my team did and they all said that with an indoor hardcourt she would probably be the one to play because she has bigger shots and a bigger game. I watched her practice yesterday; she hits the ball really well, especially off the backhand. We have to be ready. I think she is a dangerous opponent.

I could make some changes for Sunday but we will see how things go tomorrow first. Right now I am very happy with the lineup but we will see how Day 1 goes and then we will go from there as to whether the singles or doubles players change or not.

I always feel great if it comes down to the doubles. Liezel has come through every time it has been a deciding rubber, so fingers crossed. Hopefully we win before that but if we get to 2-all, I like our chances.

Christina McHale - Feb. 3

Mary Joe told me this morning that I would be playing singles and it turns out I will start play tomorrow for the U.S. against Victoria Azarenka. It is maybe nice to play first because there are no results yet so I don’t have to be thinking about that in the back of my mind. The whole team has had a good week of practice and I think I have tried to do everything I can to be ready so tomorrow is just about playing every point and playing my best.

Especially today there is some anticipation and excitement for the matches. Serena plays Govortsova after I play Azarenka and then I would play Govortsova on Sunday. I have only played her in doubles but I have seen her play in singles, she has big groundstrokes, has had some good results, so they will both be tough matches. I didn’t really think about who they would play second singles before it was announced today because I knew if I played singles, I would play Azarenka on the first day. I have to focus on one day at a time and Azarenka first right now.

Tomorrow I think just I have to focus on sticking to my game. She is playing really well and I think staying within myself and not trying to do too much will be the key.

Red hoodie layered in all gray beneath so I'll have options depending on how cold that place is. I have a white/red BU hat with me too but I'm not sure if I'll wear it. No sign today either, but I'll haev something for tomorrrow.

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread-Christina to open against Yakimova at 1pm! Serena to fo

Update after Day 1 around the world. All matches are complete except USA-Belarus.

Russia, Czech, and Japan all lead 2-0 heading into Day 2. Serbia-Belgium, Italy-Ukraine, Slovak-France, and Australia-Switzerland are all tied 1-1.

If USA wins, then they would go to the World Group Play-Off against most likely Spain, Belgium, Ukraine, Germany, Japan, Slovak Republic, and Australia.

The drawings are done based on rankings. The top 4 ranked play the lower ranked 4 teams. That means:
USA, Belgium, Spain, Ukraine vs. Germany, Australia, Slovak Republic, and Japan. Unless the rankings change after Sunday.

For once it would be nice to get a good draw, so here's to hoping for Japan or Slovak Republic.

If we lose (which at this point is highly doubtful) then world group II play-off would be calling.

China, Argentina, Great Britain, and Sweden have all qualified into WG II PO already. They will compete against Belarus, Slovenia, France and Switzerland most likely.
