Italy takes dominating lead in Fed Cup final

BY foxsports • November 7, 2009

Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone each had straight-set wins Saturday to give Italy a 2-0 lead over the United States in the Fed Cup final.

Pennetta beat Alexa Glatch 6-3, 6-1 and Schiavone rallied after a two-hour rain delay to dispatch U.S. Open quarterfinalist Melanie Oudin 7-6 (2), 6-2 on the outdoor red clay court at the Rocco Polimeni club.

Reverse singles and doubles were scheduled for Sunday in the best-of-five series.
