PLAYERS: Ayumi Morita
Spain completed a 4-0 sweep of Japan in Fed Cup World Group play on Sunday by winning in a reverse singles match and the doubles match. Carla Suarez beat Ayumi Morita 6-3, 7-5 to give Spain a 3-0 lead before doubles pair Anabel Medina and Lourdes Dominguez defeated Misaki Doi and Shuko Aoyama 6-4, 7-5. Suarez, who won Spain's first point by defeating Doi on Saturday, used her reliable serve to take the first set. Japan's No. 1 saved one set point before sending her approach shot into the net to fall behind. Suarez missed a chance to serve out the match up 5-3 in the second set, letting Morita rally to make it 5-all. But the Spaniard broke Morita's serve to clinch the match in 1 hour, 48 minutes, when Morita's return of her deep forehand fell short. The event was held on the outdoor clay court at Real Club de Polo tennis club. Spain's Silvia Soler-Espinosa beat Morita in a singles match on Saturday.
