Injured Ana out of Fed Cup

Injured Ana out of Fed Cup

Ana has been forced to withdraw from Serbia's Fed Cup clash with Slovakia at the weekend due to a shoulder injury.

The 25-year-old aggravated her shoulder while practising in Melbourne after losing in the fourth round of the Australian Open. An MRI scan showed inflammation that has not yet cleared up, and she will therefore sit out the World Group tie.

Ana said: "It’s very disappointing. I really hoped my physiotherapy was going to solve the problem sooner. It's always such a thrill to play in Serbia, and we don’t have many opportunities to do it, so I'm sad to be missing this tie. I'm going to continue my recovery and try to get fit as quickly as possible."
