In the USA v. Italy first round Fed Cup tie on Sunday, February 2, Lauren Davis and Madison Keys earned the only win for the USA team with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Nastassja Burnett and Alice Matteucci. It was Davis' Fed Cup debut played before a partisan hometown crowd and salvaged the weekend for Team USA, which lost 3-1 to Italy.
Two weeks later, following their form from the Australian Open, Eric Butorac and partner Raven Klaasen defeated the world No. 1 team of Bob and Mike Bryan to take the U.S. National Indoor Doubles Championship at Memphis on Sunday, February 16.
Kudos to these topflight USIC international stars!
