She will be replaced by Robillard-Millette
“I am disappointed that I won’t be a part of the team, I was looking forward to defending my country’s colours and joining my teammates in Slovakia,” said Bouchard. “However, I need to take the time to heal my injury. I wish our team the best of luck.”
Bouchard sustained a left abdominal injury last week in Charleston. She was forced to retire from her second round match against Spaniard Lourdes Dominguez Lino.
This is Robillard-Millette’s second Fed Cup nomination. She made her debut last year in Quebec City against the Czech Republic. The 17-year-old will be arriving from China where she finished third at the prestigious ITF Junior Masters over the weekend.
