Fanning wins again
South Canterbury's Emily Fanning scored her second win for the New Zealand Fed Cup women's tennis team as they claimed an easy victory in their third match at the Asia/Oceania Group II in Astana, Kazakhstan.
The team accounted for Turkmenistan, 3-0, without dropping a set as Emma Hayman defeated Guliahan Kadyrova, 6-0 6-0, and Fanning did the same in her match against Jahana Bayramova.
In the doubles, Hayman and Abigail Guthrie won, 6-4 6-1, over Anastasiya Prenko and Jenneta Halliyeva.
The Kiwi team is without Marina Erakovic who has returned to New Zealand after a thumb injury when she fell in the tournament hotel. New Zealand play Singapore in their final pool match.
