The Fed Cup final between Belarus and USA is set to take place on November 11th and 12th in Chizhovka Arena in Minsk and the teams have started their preparations for the big weekend. Of course, our photographer Jimmie48 is already there, bringing us coverage from the players’ practice sessions.
With Victoria Azarenka absent due to a continued custody battle for her son, Belarus is led by fast-rising Aryna Sabalenka, the world No.78 who played her first WTA final in Tianjin last month, joined by Aliaksandra Sasnovich, Vera Lapko and Lidziya Marozava. Team USA members are world No.10 Coco Vandeweghe, reigning US Open champion Sloane Stephens, Shelby Rogers and Alison Riske.
Stay tuned, as tomorrow we’ll post photos from the draw ceremony in the City Hall.
