Billie Jean King Cup Play-Offs: Maia Lumsden joins the Lexus GB team for Copper Box tie against Sweden
• 2 MINUTE READ
Maia Lumsden has been selected to join the Lexus GB Billie Jean King Cup team as the fifth and final squad member for their upcoming Play-Off tie against Sweden at the Copper Box between 11-12 November.
Should Lumsden be selected to play in the Brits’ tie against Sweden, she will become an LTA Colour Holder - a status that is achieved when a player steps onto court to play their first match for Great Britain.
Lumsden comes into the team in fiery form, having picked up back-to-back doubles titles at the WTA Rouen Challenger and W60 Glasgow event. As a result of these victories, the 25-year-old has now been hailed the new British No.1 doubles player and has achieved a career-high ranking of world No.78.
With 12 doubles titles to her name, Lumsden brings a fresh skillset to the team and could be a key asset to Keothavong’s Billie Jean King Cup team, as they look to overcome Sweden and punch their ticket to next year's Qualifiers.
