The first TGINF (Thank God It’s Not Friday) Tuesday Fed Cup was an exciting one. Not only was it the first Fed Cup held on a Tuesday, but for the first time – two teams tied! What a beautiful day. Twenty four women competed on four teams: The order of finish was: New Zealand (152 points), Belgium (162), and Italy and Japan were tied with 164 points. The moto of Fed Cup is “every point counts” and that certainly was true today considering that Belgium came in third place by 2 points! Congrats to Mary, Ayumi, Suzie, Angela, Marie, Rosemary, Elaine, Catherine, Lauren, Kay, Lorraine and Ulli. The forecast for the “regular” Fed Cup scheduled for Friday looks good – hope to see you there.
