Venus Williams and Lindsay Davenport gave the U.S. Fed Cup team a 2-0 lead over Belgium. Williams defeated Els Callens 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday, shortly after Lindsay Davenport needed just 39 minutes to win 6-0, 6-2 over Eveline Vanhyfte. The Belgians are playing the best-of-five first-round Fed Cup contest without their top two players, Justine Henin-Hardenne and Kim Clijsters.
