Fernandez extended as Fed Cup captain

BY foxsports • September 9, 2010

Mary Joe Fernandez will captain the U.S. Fed Cup team for at least two more years.

The U.S. Tennis Association said Thursday that it had extended her contract. Fernandez took over as captain last year and led the Americans to their first final since 2003.

The United States faces Italy in this year's final Nov. 6-7 in San Diego. The Americans are seeking their first title since 2000.

Fernandez helped the U.S. reach the finals in four of her six years playing on the Fed Cup team and finished with a 16-10 record.

She won Grand Slam doubles titles at the 1991 Australian Open and 1996 French Open.
