Along with the tee times, we've included a comment from U.S. captain Beth Daniel

Match 9 (8:05 a.m.)

Helen Alfredsson/ Tania Elosegui (Europe) vs. Christina Kim/Michelle Wie (USA)

Daniel's take: They're really good friends and Michelle can handle Christina; need I say more?

Match 10 (8:20 a.m.)

Catriona Matthew/Diana Luna (Europe) vs. Angela Stanford/Brittany Lang (USA)

Daniel's take: Brittany makes a lot of birdies and Angela potentially makes a lot of birdies. That's a really good team. Angela has the experience to be with a rookie.

Match 11 (8:35 a.m.)

Suzann Pettersen/Anna Nordqvist (Europe) vs. Nicole Castrale/Cristie Kerr (USA)

Daniel's take: They played together in Sweden. They have the same intensity level, so it's a good match.

Match 12 (8:50 a.m.)

Gwladys Nocera/Maria Hjorth (Europe) vs. Brittany Lincicome/Kristy McPherson (USA)

Daniel's take: They played well today in foursomes (Friday) and lost to a team that shot 7 under. Kristy keeps Brittany loose, and they play well together.
