Former US Open champion Emma Raducanu has pulled out of Britain’s Billie Jean King Cup team because of a wrist injury, dealing a big 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, particularly with it being on home soil,” Raducanu said in a Twitter post.

Britain is hosting the 12-nation event in Glasgow from Nov. 8-13 where teams will play in four groups of three with the group winners progressing to the semifinals.

Britain face Kazakhstan and Spain.

Raducanu, 19, has struggled with a succession of injuries since her stunning US Open triumph last year when she came through qualifying and took the title without losing a set.
