Azarenka may play for Belarus in Fed Cup 2018, Belarus coach says

Captain of the women's national team of Belarus Eduard Dubrov assessed the match against the US team (2:3) in the home final of the Federation Cup 2017.

I am pleased with the result: for our team this is very great experience. The team is young, they were not able to do it at the first attempt... But the score 2:3 is a decent result for the final. Everything is ahead, we will learn all our lessons.

There are no words... I am satisfied with everything, our team is our sports family.

Why did I decide to select Sabalenka and Sasnovich for the doubles match?

Each of these girls already played with CoCo Vandeweghe, they knew how to handle her, some subtleties of playing against the American. Lapko and Morozova only observed from the side.

In the second set the score was 5:2, there were some moments... But this is tennis, we were a little bit unlucky. 95 countries participate in this Cup. We are second, but there is an incentive to become first.

Already in February Belarus will take on Germany in the Fed Cup 2018 at Chizhovka Arena.

The squad will not change, maybe Vika Azarenka will finally arrive," Dubrov told  Belarus 5.
