SEOUL, Korea -- The 2012 BNP Paribas World Team Cup got off to a great start for Team USA on Monday, as all three teams in action swept their ties in convincing fashion.
The quad team worked their veteran magic against host Korea on Center Court at the Olympic Tennis Center, while the juniors used all three team members to dispatch Russia and gain valuable experience that will be useful during the rest of the week. In the afternoon, the women completed a tough test with Spain and will now play England on Tuesday.
