KEY BISCAYNE, Fla., March 25 (UPI) -- Serena and Venus Williams, 47-year-old Martina Navratilova and Lisa Raymond were named Thursday to the United States Fed Cup tennis team.

The Williams sisters will play singles and Navratilova and Raymond will team in doubles in a first-round match against Slovenia April 24-25 in Portoroz, Slovenia.

The selections were announced by U.S. Fed Cup captain Zina Garrison.
