VENUS FED CUP 2015 3“It was a great atmosphere, we played well and I’m proud of the win,” said Venus Williams.

The Americans now advance to the playoffs in April and have a chance to return to the World Group, which comprises the top eight teams

The U.S. Fed Cup Team cruised towards a promotion playoff in April in its bid to regain World Group I status. And leading the charge was the country’s two players, Venus and Serena Williams.  The Sister Act had put their team 2-0 up on Saturday with wins over world number 121 Ormaechea and number 197 Irigoyen whose country were seeded and had a choice of court, opting for clay, despite the huge gap in world rankings favouring the Americans.

The US will have to wait for February to know the name of their playoff opponents from Italy, Australia, Canada and Poland.
