Konta to miss Fed Cup in 2020

London, Jan 17 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 1/17/2020 10:28:03 AM IST

Johanna Konta will be fit to play in the Australian Open but has announced she will not compete for Great Britain in the Fed Cup this year.

Konta is Britain’s best female player and has won her last 11 singles matches in Fed Cup, the most recent two to help Britain to victory over Kazakhstan last April.
That saw Britain finally promoted back to World Group level after 26 years, although a subsequent revamp of the competition means they must win a play-off against Slovakia in Bratislava next month to book a spot at the inaugural finals week in Budapest. “I had a really good chat with Anne in November and so everyone who is important to me does know about this decision and has been really supportive,” she said. “It’s kind of a combination of things: it’s an Olympic year, I’m looking to schedule things slightly differently for the longevity of my body and to be able to come back in following years and hopefully play more Fed Cup.”
