Asia Muhammad has been officially named to the U.S. roster for next weekend's Billie Jean King Cup Qualifier.


Muhammad, 31, is ranked No. 36 in doubles and No. 169 in singles and has been named to the U.S. Billie Jean King Cup roster for the first time. So far in 2022, Muhammad has posted an 18-3 record in doubles and 16-1 in singles, notably winning a staggering 27 consecutive matches across both disciplines from February through March. 


Her doubles streak ended at 12 straight victories with a defeat in the final of the BNP Paribas Open, a WTA 1000 event, but her 15-match singles streak is still alive. Muhammad won three consecutive ITF World Tennis Tour events in Australia in February following the Australian Open.


Muhammad officially replaces Danielle Collins, who withdrew from the tie with a lingering neck injury. She is the second replacement called up to the U.S. team in recent weeks after Alison Riske, who steps in for Sloane Stephens.

The USTA and the U.S. Billie Jean King Cup team will welcome Ukraine to Asheville, N.C., and the Harrah’s Cherokee Center from April 15-16 with a spot in the 2022 Billie Jean King Cup Finals on the line. The USTA is donating 10% of the ticket revenue from the event to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund by Global Giving, in addition to organizing a number of visible support activations on the ground in Asheville to encourage fans to donate to Tennis Plays for Peace. The Tennis Plays for Peace initiative is bringing the tennis community and fans together to support the humanitarian relief efforts for the war in Ukraine.


Tickets for the 2022 Qualifier can be purchased at or at Ticketmaster. For more information, including access to player and historical records, visit the USTA's Billie Jean King Cup homepage of the official Billie Jean King Cup site.
