The draw for the Fed Cup final took place today, and yeah, Italy's still in a good spot.
Round 3: Flavia Pennetta vs. Melanie Oudin
Round 4: Francesca Schiavone vs. Alexa Glatch
It's a good draw for Italy. Flavia on clay is always tough, though Alexa Glatch claims its her favorite surface because it gives her time, but more importantly, Tranny has been on a roll as of late, winning 9 of her last 10 matches. If she can take out the US #1 on the first day, then Italy's golden after Day 1.
All that said, I'm looking forward to this final. You know Italy's going to bring it. Here's hoping MJ finds a way to inspire her kids one more time.
