It seems almost certain that Venus will not join the team, Lauren Davis called in.

More changes expected.

yes, indeed Venus withdrew, due to a "personal matter" (whatever that means)

This situation shows again you should ALWAYS go with your 3 best singles players !
Because it can always happen that one player can`t play (injury or illness)

Now it will be very difficult for USA to win !

This would have been different with Venus even if only for doubles. But for that match vs. Pennetta...ugh McHale should have been out all weekend. She's only won 3 matches since last fall and was 0-2 vs. Pennetta. Unless Davis (1-0 vs. Pennetta) was injured she should have played that match.

ITA def. USA 3-2 !

Serena Williams def. Sara Errani 4-6 7-6 6-3
Flavia Pennetta def. Christina McHale 6-1 6-1
Errani/Pennetta def. Riske/S.Williams 6-0 6-3

Serena gave all she had, even played the doubles rubber
But Serena alone is not enough. Keys or Stephens were needed

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."
