The Doris Hart Cup had a tough match against a strong Canadian team. 2010 World Champion Rosie Asch beat Louise Russ in straight sets to score the first blood for Canada. Jane Lutz then played a strong match to beat Huguette Fontaine in straight sets. Huguette said she was so upset that she had wine with lunch and that her captain did not object. Rosie and Huguette then decided that her problem in singles was that she did not have win with breakfast! However, then they agreed that the main problem was  the stellar play of Lutz. Fontaine and Asch however were too strong in doubles, with Asch setting up Huguette for strong volleys. The Canadians won the deciding match also in straight sets. The USA play Gr. Britain on Saturday.
