The ITF has today announced the official team nominations for the Billie Jean King Cup by BNP Paribas Play-offs, which will take place on 16-17 April. A total of 75 players (including two playing captains) have been named as part of their nation’s team for next week’s ties.

Among the nominees are three of the world’s top 10 players, with world No. 3 Simona Halep leading Romania against Italy, No. 5 Elina Svitolina competing in Ukraine’s clash with Japan, and No. 10 Kiki Bertens in action for Netherlands in their tie against China, P.R.

 

The 16 nations are competing for a place in the 2022 Billie Jean King Cup by BNP Paribas Qualifiers – meaning that the eight teams which win next week will be just one more victory away from the a place at the Finals in 2022.

 

All of the action can be followed via the English and Spanish versions of BillieJeanKingCup.com with live scoring available on the Billie Jean King Cup Live Centre. Live streaming of the Play-offs will be available via the Billie Jean King Cup Video Platform.
