Great Britain's No.1 women's tennis player Laura Robson has withdrawn from Great Britain's February Fed Cup tie in Hungary due to an on-going wrist injury.

Her replacement, 22-year-old Jocelyn Rae, has won 10 LTF doubles titles and won gold at the Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010.

She will join Heather Watson, Johanna Konta and Tara Moore in the Great Britain team who have been drawn against Hungary, Latvia and Romania in the group stages.

And Judy Murray, Great Britain's coach of Great Britain's Fed Cup team is keen to bring Rae into the squad as a doubles specialist, despite expressing disappointment over Robson's absence.

"While we are obviously going to miss Laura on and off the court in Budapest, it's a great opportunity for me to bring Joss into the team as a doubles specialist," Murray said.

"She has shown her potential wining gold at the Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010 and is back to full fitness after a series of injuries."

The Fed Cup will take place from 4-9th February.
