Emma Raducanu Great Britain will not qualify for the Billie Jean King Cup Finals France next month.

Captain Anne Keothavong He chose the same team that made it to the semi-finals in September and said former US Open champion Raducanu was “not available” for the April 14-15 draw at Coventry.

After his opening victory at Indian Wells, Raducanu said he didn’t even know when the draw was, a comment that Keothavong didn’t seem to like.

The former British number one responded to a headline of the comment with a thinking face emoji on social media. He later shared a separate post, apparently referring to it: “My communication skills are generally good in case anyone is wondering.”

Explaining her decision to stay loyal to Harriet Dart, Heather Watson said, Katie BoulterAlicia Barnett and Olivia Nicholls, Keothavong said: “I’m delighted to be named after the team we gelled so well in Glasgow four months ago and the team spirit is exciting.

“There were some memorable performances throughout the week that helped us get to the semi-finals.

“Harriet showed us what she can do by beating the likes of (Paula) Badosa and (Ajla) Tomljanovic.

“We saw Alicia and Olivia making their Cup debut, bringing so much energy to the field and showing how important doubles are. Katie and Heather have a proven track record in this competition and are as enthusiastic as ever to be a part of this team.

“Although Emma is not available for this tie, we look forward to seeing her back on the team in the near future.”

Missing the November Finals in Glasgow due to an ankle injury, Raducanu advanced to the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open this week before losing to world number one Iga Swiatek.
