The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - Sport -

Minsk, Be­larus — Sloane Stephens is back in the United States team for the Fed Cup fi­nal, and Vic­to­ria Azarenka is miss­ing for Be­larus.

Stephens, who won the US Open this year for her first ma­jor ti­tle, missed the open­ing two rounds of the in­ter­na­tional team com­pe­ti­tion be­cause of a foot in­jury. But she is back and will be play­ing along­side Coco Van­deweghe, Shelby Rogers and Ali­son Riske in the best-of-five se­ries this week­end in Minsk.

The United States is look­ing to win the Fed Cup for the first time in 17 years, while Be­larus is play­ing in the fi­nal for the first time.
