No nation can compete with the depth of talent the U.S. has been able to draw on. Team USA owns a 154-40 record overall since 1963, and more than 20 players have recorded at least 10 individual victories in the competition across singles and doubles.
U.S. edges Ukraine
Team USA is headed back to the Billie Jean King Cup by BNP Paribas Finals. In a fitting ending to an emotional and spirited weekend of tennis against Ukraine in the qualifying round, Asia Muhammad and Jessica Pegula teamed up in doubles and won the fifth and final match against Dayana Yastremska and Lyudmyla Kichenok to give the Americans a 3-2 overall victory in Asheville, N.C. The Finals will be held in November at a location to be determined, where Team USA will play for a record-extending 19th Billie Jean King Cup.
The 2022 Billie Jean King Cup Qualifier also helped position the worldwide tennis community to exceed its fundraising goal of more than $1 million for Ukraine relief through the Tennis Plays for Peace initiative. More than $225,000 alone was generated in conjunction with the tie. Fans can continue to make donations at tennisplaysforpeace.com/.
