US captain Juli Inkster found it tough to reign in her confidence after watching the US fight back to take a slender advantage into the final day of the Solheim Cup.
The US trailed after day one but will head into the final singles matches level, meaning they need just six points to retain compared to the six-and-a-half required by Europe to win the trophy.
The US have won 10 of the last 15 previous Solheim singles rounds, leaving them with every reason to believe they are strongly positioned to win a third straight Solheim Cup crown.
“We’re ecstatic where we are because I think we’re pretty good in singles,” said Inkster.
“Hopefully the weather will be a little better tomorrow and we can see some really good golf from both sides. We will battle for the cup. That’s what we do.
Inkster controversially left the unbeaten Korda sisters, Nelly and Jessica, out of the fourballs line-up on Saturday, but she says that should not be seen as a negative.
“As for the Kordas,” Inkster added, “I just think they played twice yesterday (Friday) and once today in some really tough weather.
“I’m going to need them in my singles matches. Those points are very valuable. And they need some rest.”
