A post shared by CoCo Vandeweghe (@cocovandey) on

CoCo Vandeweghe emerged as a Fed Cup hero with three wins over the weekend in Minsk. The 25-year-old American beat both Aryna Sabalenka and Aliaksandra Sasnovich in straight sets. After Sloane Stephens dropped her singles rubbers (both in three dramatic sets), Vandeweghe teamed up with Shelby Rogers to bring the cup home for the first time since 2000.

Vandeweghe is the first player to win eight Fed Cup matches in a season since 2005 and and the first to win six Fed Cup singles matches in a year since Petra Kvitova in 2011.

The congratulations came pour in for Team USA (which also included Alison Riske and captain Kathy Rinaldi).

The last U.S. captain to lead a winning Fed Cup team was Billie Jean King.

“I’m just really thrilled for all four players,” Rinaldi said. “CoCo came out and just played unbelievable, Shelby stepped up, and Sloane – my heart was broken for her, but she battled this whole weekend, she battled all the way to the end. I’m so proud of all four of them.”
