Emma Reducanu has withdrawn from the Great Britain squad for the Billie Jean King Cup

Keothavong summed it up by saying that Redukanu is “not available” for this competition, which is designed for the women’s tennis teams of the world.

In the qualifiers for the Billie Jean King Cup, Great Britain will play a strong French team (April 14-15).

2021 US Open Grand Slam champion Emma Reducanu exited this year’s tournament in Indian Wells in the round of 16, losing to Iga Sviatek.

Emma is currently ranked 77th in the WTA ranking. At the age of 20, Reducanu withdrew from Great Britain’s Billie Jean King Cup squad last October due to a wrist injury.

It will be recalled that Great Britain reached the semi-finals at the 2022 competition, losing to Glasgow, Australia.

“I am delighted to field the same team as the one we had four months ago in Glasgow where we performed so well,” said coach Ann Keothavong.

The final stage of the Billie Jean King Cup will take place in November this year.
