USA beats Belarus
for 18th Fed Cup title
MINSK, Belarus (AP) — The
United States won its 18th Fed
Cup title and the first since 2000
with a 3-2 win against Belarus
CoCo Vandeweghe and Shelby
Rogers beat Aryna Sabalenka
and Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-3,
7-6 (3) in the deciding doubles of
the 2017 final.
Sasnovich had kept Belarus
alive after beating U.S. Open
champion Sloane Stephens 4-6,
6-1, 8-6 to leave the final level at
Vandeweghe earlier beat Sa-
balenka 7-6 (5), 6-1 to give the
U.S. a 2-1 lead.
The U.S. holds the most Fed
Cup titles in the international
team competition. This was its
fourth Fed Cup final since last
winning in 2000.
Belarus was making its first ap-
pearance in a Fed Cup final.
Vandeweghe has won all eight
Fed Cup matches she’s played
this season — six singles and two
Stephens had lost six matches
since winning the U.S. Open in
September. She lost both singles
matches here in Minsk, includ-
ing to Sabalenka on Saturday.
Stephens served for the match
against Sasnovich at 5-3 in the
third set, but was unable to
clinch the title for the United
States. It took Sasnovich two
attempts, at 6-5 and 7-6 in the
third set, to serve out the match.
Sabalenka had an opportu-
nity to take an early lead against
Vandeweghe when leading 5-4
but failed to take advantage of a
set point on Vandeweghe’s serve
in the 10th game.
Sabalenka led 4-1 in the
tiebreaker but surrendered
her lead to a more measured
Vandeweghe, who clinched the
first set when the Belarussian
blasted a forehand wide while
going for a winner.
Vandeweghe then jumped out
to a 5-0 lead before Sabalenka
won her only game of the sec-
“I know she was going to keep
swinging,” Vandeweghe said. “I
know what I had to do and knew
what I expected she would do. I
just kept the pressure on.”

LONDON (AP) — One break of serve,
and a mini-break, was all Roger
Federer needed to win his opening
match at the season-ending ATP Fi-
The 19-time Grand Slam champion
broke Jack Sock at the start of his
6-4, 7-6 (4) victory at the O2 Arena.
Both then held serve the rest of the
way, with Federer losing only three
points on his serve in the second set.
“Sure, I had a tactical plan with
my team,” Federer said. “But very
often in a first match like this, it gets
thrown overboard because at the
end you’re just happy to be serving
well. Focus on that first, and then on
the return game sort of try your best,
try to keep the ball in play, and go
The 36-year-old Federer, who is
ranked No. 2 in the world and won
the Australian Open and Wimble-
don this season, is the oldest player
ever to qualify for the season-ending
tournament, which started in 1970.
