Elena Baltacha is hoping to return to action in April after undergoing ankle surgery last year.

Former British No 1 Baltacha had an operation after the London Olympics and has been sidelined ever since, although she was named as a non-playing member of the Great Britain Fed Cup team competing in Israel this week.

The 29-year-old's recuperation is now progressing nicely and she is hoping to return to competition in two months' time.

She said: "The recovery has been going really well. It's my third week on court and I'm hitting really well, working on my condition.

"My ankle seems to be fine, I just need to maintain it.

"Hopefully I will be back in April. Closer to the time I will make a decision."
