Florida: American Sloane Stephens will open the Fed Cup World Group Playoff tie between the U.S. and Sweden against 54th-ranked Sophia Arvidsson at the Delray Beach Tennis Center on Saturday.

The match will be the 16th-ranked Stephens' singles debut in Fed Cup. She won the Fed Cup one doubles match she's played in the past.

"It'll be my first singles match, so it'll be a little you know, I'll be a little nervous," Stephens said. "But I have a great team behind me and I know they'll be really supportive, so I'm excited."
