Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone Lead Italy Past Australia At Fed Cup 2011

Australia did well on day one to split the singles, giving Samantha Stosur and Jarmila Groth a chance to close the show on day two of singles. Instead, it was Flavia Pennetta staying perfect, following her upset of Stosur with a 6-3 6-2 defeat of Groth. In the match many anticipated when Fed Cup play started Francesca Schiavone shook off her surprise loss to Groth on day one by coming back to win a tight match with Stosur, 7-6 (1) 3-6 7-5. The two wins give Italy an insurmountable 3-1 lead and the win.
