Player of the week: Anabel Medina

Anabel Medina played her best tennis last weekend to give the Spanish team a win over Italy in Fed Cup quarter-finals. Although the tie was played in Italy and indoor, the clay specialist showed her progress in fast surfaces as she defeated WTA #34 Flavia Pennetta 6/2 6/3 to set up a 0-2 lead for Spain. Nuria Llagostera had previously given the first point to Spain upsetting Francesca Schiavone. On the second day, Medina had the chance to solve the tie and she didn't miss it. She didn't feel any pressure as she defeated WTA #23 Francesca Schiavone 6/4 6/1 and put Spain in the semis, where they will face China. Anabel showed an impressive form and just dropped 5 games on each match.
