United States Earns 18th Fed Cup Title

MINSK – Shelby Rogers and Coco Vandeweghe led the United States on Sunday to clinch the 18th Fed Cup tennis title after prevailing 3-2 over Belarus.

Thanks to the duo’s win over Belarusians Aryna Sabalenka and Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-3, 7-6 (3) in the decisive doubles match, Kathy Rinaldi’s team earned its first Fed Cup title since 2000.

“I’m just really thrilled for all four players,” Rinaldi said after the win. “CoCo came out and just played unbelievable, Shelby stepped up, and Sloane (Stephens) – my heart was broken for her, but she battled this whole weekend, she battled all the way to the end. I’m so proud of all four of them.”

The efforts of Sabalenka and Sasnovich in the singles matches, both of whom defeated Sloane Stephens, were not – however – enough to enable Belarus to secure the first Fed Cup title.

Sabalenka tied things up at 1-1 after Vandeweghe prevailed in the first match, as did Sasnovich after the singles No. 1 on the American team defeated Sabalenka.
