Good draw for GB Fed Cup Team

Following some very impressive performances by the GB team in Israel which saw promotion for the Judy Murray led squad the draw for April’s Fed Cup World Group II play-offs as been made.

Great Britain will travel to Sweden in April’s World Group II play-offs after missing out on a home draw.  The winners will earn promotion into World Group II – the second tier of the Fed Cup.

Swedens top players rank well compared to GBs top player with Sweden having two top 100 players in Johanna Larsson (62) and Sofia Arvidsson (74), but no-one else inside the world’s top 500, while Elena Baltacha (61) and Anne Keothavong (89) also feature in the worlds top 100 players. With Heather Watson (109) and Laura Robson (120) as back up to these players the GB squad looks to have the strength  depth to cause Sweden some serious problems when they meet from the 21st-22nd of April.
