It’s slightly surprising, but Sara will play singles for Italy in the Fed Cup this weekend.
She will open the tie tomorrow, against the #1 player of Ukraine, Kateryna Bondarenko. They have played 4 times before, and Sara leads the H2H 3-1, though Bondarenko won their last meeting, at Wimbledon last year. Sara’s wins include a win in the Fed Cup, in 2008. Back then it was the decisive point in the tie, which kept Italy in the world group.
