 Following those games, Vania King and Lisa Raymond play Nadia Petrova and Elena Vesnina in doubles to wrap up the best-of-five event.

 Williams said that she is well rested after the Wimbledon and will be ready for the Fed Cup. "I thought actually it would be great for me to come here because I knew, even before I got here, it would be really relaxing, that this is not a big city, but this is a place where I could relax," the 2007 Wimbledon winner commented.

 A player from each side have already withdrawn from the Fed Cup. Serena Williams withdrew after injuring her left thumb and calf at the Wimbledon. From the Russian team absent will be No. 2-ranked Maria Sharapova, who pulled out with a right shoulder injury after losing to Williams at the All England Club.

 Russian Captain Shamil Tarpischev, whose visa was delayed, finally got the papers and will join the Russian team.

 All punters can hope for is a break from the rainy weather in Vermont.
