San Antonio is in for a treat next weekend when the U.S. Fed Cup team takes on Switzerland in the World Group Play-offs.
The tie will begin on Saturday, April 20 on an indoor hard court. World No. 8 Sloane Stephens will lead the team alongside Madison Keys, Sofia Kenin, Jennifer Brady and Jessica Pegula. Stephens and Keys just faced off in Charleston, with Keys scoring her first career win over the former US Open champion.
Stephens last played Fed Cup in the 2018 semifinals, which the U.S. won over France. Meanwhile, Keys split her singles rubbers in the United States' quarterfinal loss to Australia in February.
Kenin made her rookie debut in the Fed Cup final last November, which the Americans lost to the Czechs.
World No. 78 Brady and world No. 74 Pegula will be making their Fed Cup debuts.
The Americans will be favored against a Swiss team that has just one player inside of the Top 100, world No. 81 Viktorija Golubic. She'll be joined by former world No. 9 Timea Bacsinszky, world No. 144 Conny Perrin and 20-year-old Ylena In-Albon.
The other World Group Play-off ties will see Canada travel to take on the Czech Republic, Germany venture to Latvia and Belgium host Spain. Top 50 participants include Marketa Vondrousova, Jelena Ostapenko, Anastasija Sevastova, Angelique Kerber, Julia Goerges, Garbine Muguruza and Carla Suarez Navarro.
