The 2022 edition of the Billie Jean King Cup has been shrouded in controversy with many players, including World No.1 Iga Swiatek, who voiced her displeasure over the scheduling of the event.

World No.3 Jessica Pegula also recently withdrew from the event and applauded Swiatek for raising the issue.
"It’s great that she spoke on that subject," remarked Pegula. "Just to let everyone know that it’s affecting her, affecting players. I’m sure it wasn’t easy for her deciding not to represent Poland. That means it needs to change - for someone like that to stand up."
