Five tennis matches in two days decide the winner of the first round of the 2012 Fed Cup, where the 17-time champion U.S. team attempts to rebound from last season. Saturday's pair of singles matches and Sunday's one doubles and two singles bouts help fans forget about the weather outside the DCU Center's walls and look forward to the return of geese laying tennis balls in city parks. The U.S. team, featuring Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Christina McHale, Liezel Huber, and Sloane Stephens, face the world's No. 3–ranked Victoria Azarenka and her Belarusian brethren. Serena's vicious serve has scooped up 498 career singles victories and 27 Grand Slam titles and forged her status as a legend of the hard court. The team keeps its fingers crossed that her famously strong forehand and deft network can bag the U.S. one of the three wins needed to bury the Belarusians and convince Italy to stop making fun of its sweatbands.

Their mission to give every child the best education possible is still going strong. They use an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student?s particular needs. Due to their success in helping K?12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills, there are currently 260 Huntington franchises open nationwide. The certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child?s skills, academic needs and potential for growth. Tutors note student response to different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child?s learning style. Teachers adhere to the company?s code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging students to improve grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
