Davis Cup Week; WTA Player Qualifies Then Gets No. 1 Seed

Notes: Jovanovski entered late and had to play the qualies, then qualified, and due to her ranking was then given the top seeding…Voskoboeva, ranked No. 77, is the No. 7 seed — spooky!…No Top 50 players in the field, why isn’t this a $100K lower-tier event?…Pulling from the event were Hsieh Su-wei, Karin Knapp and Urszula Radwanska…Former champs in the field are Begu (2012) and Krajicek (2005).

Davis Cup Wrap: U.S. Sputtering, Swiss Fail, Kazakh Win$

Former world No. 1 Roger Federer does his annual skip-and-defend (skip the first round, hope your team wins), and now will have to play to keep Switzerland from falling out of the World Group later this year. Swiss Stan Wawrinka won the opening singles against Lukas Rosol, but it was all Czech from then on as Tomas Berdych took control of the tie, winning his first singles over Swiss Henri Laaksonen (?!?), the doubles with Rosol over Wawrinka-Marcos Chiudinelli 24-22 in the fifth set, then his second singles over Wawrinka in four sets. Thanks Rog, from the Swiss team, and the Czech team. The Czechs will next travel to Kazakhstan in the quarterfinals.
