Laura Robson has withdrawn from Great Britain's Fed Cup encounter against Hungary because of an ongoing injury to her wrist.

Robson, who has been troubled by the problem since last year, was knocked out of the Australian Open in the first round, and the British No. 1 has been replaced by Jocelyn Rae for the Fed Cup ties to be played from February 4-9.

And Robson broke the disappointing news on her Facebook page.

"After consulting with my doctor I have been advised that I'll need to rest my wrist for another two to four weeks. This will sadly not allow me to play in Fed Cup, which was one of my biggest goals for 2014," she said.

Great Britain captain Judy Murray said: "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. She has shown her potential winning gold at the Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010 and is back to full fitness."
