Portoroz:
Lisa Raymond came from behind to beat Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia 5-7 6-3 6-4 and give the United States a place in the Fed Cup quarterfinals. With only the doubles remaining in the best-of-five weekend series, the Americans held an unassailable 3-1 lead over Slovenia. Earlier, Venus Williams recovered from a slow start to beat Tina Pisnik 6-3 6-1 and put the Americans on track to earn a quarterfinal berth and a spot in the World Group next year. In the July 10-11 quarterfinals, the US will play Austria, which beat Slovakia. Williams won only one point in the first two games and appeared to be bothered by swirling, gusty winds on a sunny day. But once she found her range, Williams was relentless. Yesterday, Williams put the US team back into the match by beating Srebotnik 6-1 6-2 after Pisnik had upset Raymond 7-5 7-5. (AP)
