Tennis Great Britain’s Raducanu withdraws from Billie Jean Cup

Former US Open champion Emma Raducanu has withdrawn from Britain’s Billie Jean King Cup team due to a wrist injury, which is a major blow to the host nation’s hopes. “I’m disappointed to get the news from the doctors that I won’t be ready in time, especially since it’s homegrown,” Raducanu said in a Twitter post.

Great Britain will host the 12-nation event in Glasgow from November 8-13, where teams will play in four groups of three, with the group winners advancing to the semi-finals. Great Britain plays against Kazakhstan and Spain.

Raducanu, 19, has struggled with a string of injuries since her stunning US Open victory last year, when she came through qualifying and took the title without losing a set. “I did everything I could to get it done on time, since my last tournament I’ve been doing physical training and rehabilitation every day.

“I have confidence in my teammates and look forward to playing next year.” Raducanu withdrew from the Transylvania Open this month due to the wrist injury.
