Anne Keothavong “in awe” after Jo Konta leads Great Britain to 26-year Fed Cup high

Great Britain Fed Cup PA

Britain’s Fed Cup captain Anne Keothavong says she is “in awe” of Jo Konta and her team after they were promoted to World Group II.

The British women fought hard in London to defeat Kazakhstan in their play-off, with every match of the 3-1 win turning out to be a real nail-biter.

And, after leading them to their highest level for 26 years, Keothavong couldn’t hide her pride.

“It was such an incredible effort,” Keothavong said. “I am just totally in awe of these women.”

“I couldn’t get there as a player but to be able to captain this achievement and to finally achieve it together after so long is definitely a highlight for me,” she said.

“Watching the players develop and grow; watching Jo lead this team as the number one; playing a small part in something much bigger is a very proud moment for me.”
