November 11, 2017

MINSK: CoCo Vandeweghe will open the United States’ bid to win the Fed Cup for the first time in 17 years when she takes on Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the first rubber on Saturday.

It will be a first meeting between Sasnovich and Vandeweghe, who are both unbeaten in Fed Cup competition this year. Aryna Sabalenka, Belarusian number one for the first time this year, will face US Open winner Sloane Stephens in the second rubber before the reverse singles on Sunday.

Stephens, the world number 13, will start as favorite despite failing to win a single match since her victory at Flushing Meadows in September.

Should the tie go to a decisive fifth rubber on Sunday, Vera Lapko and Lidziya Marozava will take on US pair Shelby Rogers and Alison Riske in doubles. Belarus have never won a Fed Cup championship while the US won the last of their record 17 titles in 2000.
