San Diego to host USTA’s Fed Cup

The USTA announced Tuesday that the city of San Diego and the San Diego Sports Arena have been selected to host the 2010 Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Final between the United States and Italy on Nov. 6-7. This will mark the first time the Fed Cup Final has been played in the United States since 2000, when the U.S. won its record 17th Fed Cup title.

“We are very excited that San Diego will be hosting the 2010 Fed Cup Final,” said U.S. Fed Cup Capt. Mary Joe Fernandez, who has led the team to consecutive World Group Finals in her first two seasons as captain. “The area always has been supportive of women’s tennis. We look forward to playing in front of a large, enthusiastic and patriotic crowd and hope to use the home-court advantage as we try to bring the Fed Cup title back to the U.S.”

“We could not be more proud of our Fed Cup team’s achievement of reaching the final for a second consecutive year,” said Lucy Garvin, chairwoman of the board and president, USTA. “We look forward to bringing this world-class event to San Diego, a city with a long and rich tennis history. With the help of San Diego’s wonderful and enthusiastic fans, we look forward to adding another chapter to that history by winning the 2010 Fed Cup title.”
