Debbie Graham, a former Fountain Valley tennis standout, will replace injured doubles partner Pam Shriver on the U.S. Federation Cup team.
Graham will join Lindsay Davenport, Ann Grossman and Lori McNeil for the international competition July 19-26 at Frankfurt, Germany. Shriver has a stress fracture in her left leg and will be sidelined four to six weeks.
Graham and Shriver went 3-0 against Britain, Denmark and Germany on last year's team, which lost in the semifinals.
"We will definitely miss Pam's veteran leadership capabilities and competitive fire, but Debbie is an excellent replacement," team captain Marty Riessen said.
The United States has won the Federation Cup a record 14 times. The most recent title came in a 1990 victory over the Soviet Union.
