ITF Press Release, October 10, 2022
The 12 nations competing in the 2022 Billie Jean King Cup by Gainbridge Finals have announced their teams for the event, which takes place at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Great Britain on 8-13 November.
Among the players who will represent their nations next month are Grand Slam champions Emma Raducanu (GBR), Barbora Krejcikova (CZE), Bianca Andreescu (CAN) and Elena Rybakina (KAZ). Other stars set to appear at the Finals include Paula Badosa (ESP), Olympic champion Belinda Bencic (SUI), Leylah Fernandez (CAN), Coco Gauff (USA), Jessica Pegula (USA), and Karolina Pliskova (CZE).
The teams will compete in four groups of three nations over the first four days of the Finals, before the four group winners contest the semi-finals on Saturday 12 November. The 2022 Billie Jean King Cup final will then take place on Sunday 13 November, where the winners will be crowned champions of the women’s World Cup of Tennis.
For the very first time, each member of the winning team will also be awarded with special “Billie Blue” jackets designed by Tory Burch, as part of a new partnership announced with the fashion label in June this year. Similar to the famous green jacket awarded to the men’s winner of the Masters golf tournament, it will be the most-coveted jacket in women’s sports, created to inspire women and girls everywhere. The jacket is expected to be revealed in early November ahead of the Finals.
Tickets for the Finals are on sale now and can be purchased via the LTA website.
