Following a disappointing spell in Australia, British No. 1 Laura Robson has revealed that she has officially withdrawn from the Great Britain Fed Cup tie against Hungary next week. She will be replaced by Jocelyn Rae.
“While we are obviously going to miss Laura on and off the court in Budapest, it’s a great opportunity for me to bring Joss into the team as a doubles specialist.” GB captain Judy Murray said. “She has shown her potential winning gold at the Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010 and is back to full fitness.”
The 22-year-old joins Heather Watson, Johanna Konta and Tara Moore in the GB team. She has won 10 LTF doubles titles as well as gold at the Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010.
The Fed Cup tie takes place between February 4-9.
