Sochi has nothing on Cleveland.
It’s 7 degrees outside of the Cleveland Public Auditorium.
Remember the Australian Open, where players were frying eggs on court?
We’re freezing water out front in record time. Almost as dramatic.
You’ve got the bitter cold and you’ve got the international competition, without all of the homophobia.
Join me for Fed Cup Cleveland Day 1 as I cover the event the only way they’d let me in: for Tennis Panorama News!
First, we show Tennis Panorama Karen that we dressed up nice and show those Italians we’re not a bunch of sweatshirt-wearing media buffet hogs.
Then, we meet a Super Cleveland Tennis Fan.
Then, Team Italy Karin tells us about the most rabid fans of all: her own teammates.
After that, we drop the news on Cap’n Mary Joe Fernandez that the USA is 0-10 after starting 0-2 in Fed Cup World Group play.
Oh, yes we did!
