Fed Cup - take II

The last (and only) time I attended Fed Cup in spring 2002, I woke up on my first morning in Charlotte, NC, turned on the TV and learned that Billie Jean King had kicked Jennifer Capriati off the team. Back in 2011, Lindsay Davenport and Lisa Raymond shared some details on Twitter, and I did a brief post here.

So...fast foward 16 years and I am well excited to attend the US vs Netherlands Fed Cup tie in Asheville, NC this weekend.

This tie got even more interesting when Serena and Venus Williams were named to the team last month. Will Serena, returning from maternity leave, play singles? Time will tell.

I have never watched Venus or Serena play Fed Cup, so I'm excited to tick that off my list. It should be an energetic crowd and I can't wait!

I will be covering the tie it for Tennis Panorama News, so be sure to follow along on Twitter! I'll be writing a few articles for the TPN website too: http://www.tennispanorama.com/.
