Why isn't Kelly Liggan playing

I'm surprised that Ireland's top singles player Kelly Liggan and their top doubles player Claire Curran aren't taking part. I had no idea that Anne Mall had decided to switch from playing for the US to Ireland.

kelly told owen casey in february she didnt want to compete.

claire curran appears on drawsheets now as GBR, so maybe she switched?

Tennis Ireland posted a piece about Kelly's "surprising last minute withdrawal" from the team so I'm not sure what's going on there.

As for Claire, her nationality has been fluctuating on the WTA rankings between Ireland & GB all year. Last time I spoke with her father he said she was playing for Ireland as always but maybe the lure of a Wimbledon doubles main draw wc is proving a bit tempting for her.
