When Jennifer Capriati got thrown out of the Fed Cup, how come the first match she should have played was a walkover?

Surely Lisa Raymond or Meghan Shaunessy could have played instead. The rule is as long as 90 minutes is given right a player can be replaced, right?

not in the 1st match day
the 1st matches are set and whoever is scheduled to play has to play unless they have medical clearance

clearly she wasn't ill/injured so 1-0 AUT
