Nuria Parrizas cannot with Stephens with Spain in search of semifinals in the Billie Jean King Cup

The Spanish tennis player Nuria Parrizas fell (6-4, 6-4) against the American Sloane Stephens this Wednesday in the first point between both teams in the Billie Jean King Cup, the closing of Group C with the tickets to the semifinals at stake.

Parrizas, a debutant in the tournament formerly known as the Fed Cup, faced a Stephens that allows the United States to be one victory away from advancing to the crosses at the O2 in Prague. Sara Sorribes will now face Danielle Collins in the second point of the tie.

The premiere of the series left an aggressive Parrizas, despite starting ‘break’ down. The Spaniard responded well to every hit but left more unforced errors along the way, giving Stephens, the 2017 US Open champion, two sets.

The American lost her serve once when she tried to close each set, but then she found a loophole in Parrizas’ play. For the United States, which lost the previous day to Slovakia, only a victory against Spain is worth to reach the semifinals, while Anabel Medina’s defeat could be worth 2-1.
