Russia to meet Italy in Fed Cup final
Venus Williams' two singles victories were not enough to carry the U.S. into this year's Fed Cup final. Russia was victorious in the doubles match, as Nadia Petrova and Elena Vesnina defeated Williams and doubles specialist Lisa Raymond 7-5, 7-6. The tiebreak score was 7-1. Russia will meet defending champion Italy in the final in September.
