Katie Boulter will look to step up for Great Britain at the Billie Jean King Cup in Glasgow next week in the absence of Raducanu.
The British player has generally performed really well on native soil scoring some huge wins on grass. She defeated Wimbledon finalist Karolina Pliskova twice this year making a small run at Wimbledon as well. As the Billie Jean King Cup Finals are being held in Great Britain she is hoping to bring some of that good player to the event as well:
"With a home crowd behind us, you never know what can happen. We love an underdog. Let's hope we can bring a bit of Emma Raducanu magic to Billie Jean King Cup. We have no pressure, we have nothing to lose at all."
Raducanu was supposed to lead her country at the event but a wrist injury sustained in Ostrava left her unable to play. On missing Raducanu, Boulter added:
"She's a huge asset to our team and of course we all wish her well. Health is the priority and I hope she gets better. But it's time for the girls to step up and I know they will. I have great belief in every single one of them."
Playing for her country makes Boulter really proud which is why she does so well in her native UK:
"I take a lot of pride in wearing the flag and, having a couple of those ties being in the UK, I've kind of already experienced what it's going to be like, and I'm sure it'll be even more so in Glasgow. I play for these moments and I'll be relishing that."
