Great Britain were left celebrating today after defeating Canada in the FED cup semi finals.
The tie started well for Britain as world number 1 Larissa Ferrer won her first match in staight sets to give britain a 1-0 lead.The next match was the battle of the two players who had the best clay court season.Anjelica de la courtiere french open champion and Monica Gambill champion in rome and warsaw.It was a titanic battle with Gambill taking the first set leaving the crowd silent.But the french open champion clawed her way back saving 7 match points to take the breaker 13-11.The crowd cheered as the tennis got better and better.In the final set the canadian took control and showed why she is the #1 on clay this year taking the matcn 6-4 in the third.
On the second day Ferrer caused a shock by beating Anjelica 7-5 in the third but it left the british team full of cheers.Finally Gambill was back on court to prove she could win the big matches and was on the way taking the first set 6-4 but disaster stock as Monica lost the second set 6-0 with some appalling play.It looked all over as Gambill was down in confidence.Her team captain Ferrer must have had words as she cam back in third set back to the standard of set one after winning the match 6-4 in the third she threw her racket to the gorund and cried as Ferrer,Mastertona and Ribbons ran for her and they had a huge celebratory hug!

It's AMANDA Kolbovic. :fiery:

"I only lost my two fed cup matches because I had to let those Indonesians feel as if they had some chance of winning. If I had played anywhere near my worst I would have double bagelled both of them."
