Emma Raducanu has crammed a lot into the last year and now she is about to add another chapter to her story as she prepares to make her Billie Jean King Cup debut for Great Britain.

US Open champion Raducanu is set to take to the court in a senior team event for the first time as she leads Anne Keothavong’s GB team against Czech Republic in Prague.

Harriet Dart, Katie Swan and Sonay Kartal are also in the GB line-up for the play-off tie, with Raducanu relishing the challenge.

“I think new challenges will always present themselves and you’ll always be resetting goals,” said Raducanu.”I’m very focused on the improvements I can make in my game and that motivates me a lot.

Captain Anne Keothavong said: “We are looking forward to the challenge of playing the Czechs. Emma will be making her singles debut.

“Harriet and Katie have been an integral part of the team the last couple of years, while I’m excited to give Sonay that experience for the first time.

“Every tie creates a unique pressure and intensity, which I’m sure our players will thrive on, and, even though we have a difficult challenge ahead against the Czechs, I have every confidence our squad will do themselves and their country proud.”

The LTA will be streaming coverage of Raducanu’s Bille Jean King Cup debut on their TikTok channel on Friday and you can also watch it on the BBC HERE.
