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.
