Stosur chokes as US take Fed Cup control

The United States have taken a commanding 2-0 lead in their Fed Cup tie against Australia after Samantha Stosur once again crumbled under pressure to lose to Christina McHale.

Top-ranked Australian Stosur looked well and truly in control for the first hour of the match but fell apart in the second set and then failed to hold her nerve in a tight decider, losing 3-6 6-1 7-5 to the world No.57 at Brisbane’s Pat Rafter Arena.

Earlier, Daria Gavrilova was beaten 6-4 6-2 by world No.22 Madison Keys in the opening rubber.
