Italy to rest top players vs US in Fed Cup
ROME -- Defending champion Italy will rest its top players when it faces the United States in Cleveland next month in the first round of the Fed Cup.
The top players cited a travel schedule that over 16 days would have taken them from the Australian Open to a tournament in Paris, then Cleveland, then to another tournament in Qatar.
Errani and Vinci won the Australian Open doubles title Friday.
The team will be announced Wednesday.
