Great Britain get favourable home draw in the Fed Cup play-offs
Great Britain will be at home for their Fed Cup World Group II play-off tie, with Kazakhstan their opponents.
Anne Keothavong’s team reached the promotion round after coming through their Europe/Africa Zone Group 1 play-off matches at the University of Bath over the weekend.
They won all four of their match with British No 1 Johanna Konta’s win over Serbia’s Aleksandra Krunic on Saturday sealing the deal for the hosts.
And Kazakhstan now stand between Britain and a place in the World Group for the first time since 1993.
