Too bad the US couldn't get Sloane to play.

Having this take place in Brisbane makes it especially though for the US. Still, crossing my fingers, the US takes it 3-2.

Re: Fed Cup 2016, World Group 1 Play-off: Australia v USA

The fact that Sam is playing on her home turf clinched it for me: USA for the win!

I didn't know that. Thanks for setting me straight. I like her and the rest of the Aussie team, and would normally wish them well...but I gotta back my Americans

With the inclusion of the Energizer Bunny, I'm tipping Australia, but if it comes down to the doubles, we're good, but BMS is better.
