    0

    PARIS: Italy kept their Fed Cup title defense on track Sunday, downing the United States to join Australia and Germany in the semifinals of the women’s tennis competition. Karin Knapp claimed the decisive third point for Italy, giving them an unbeatable 3-0 lead with a 6-3, 7-5 victory over American Alison Riske. The holders won’t know their opponents for the April 19 to 20 semi-finals until Monday, after rain in Seville forced decisive matches in Spain’s clash with the Czech Republic to be pushed back with the hosts holding a 1-0 lead. Both Italy and the United States were without their top players for the tie on an indoor hard court in Cleveland, Ohio.
