Pe’er sidelined with injury for Israel’s ties vs Croatia

Israel’s Fed Cup team will have to manage without Shahar Pe’er when it faces Croatia in Budapest, Hungary on Wednesday in its Europe/Africa Zone Group I Pool D opener.

Pe’er injured her left ankle during her first round doubles match at the Australian Open two weeks ago and only returned to the practice courts last Thursday.

She was a full participant in Tuesday’s training session in Budapest, but captain Amos Mansdorf decided not to risk her for the Croatia tie, with the team to be in action on Thursday and Friday as well.
