Britain’s girls at the Federation Cup

In the wake of Naomi Osaka’s stunning victory in the Australian Open, adding a second Grand Slam to her US Open crown, the Fed Cup tennis tournament has rolled into Bath, with Britain’s girls drawn at home for the first time since 1993. Having battled past Slovenia and Greece without too much difficulty over the first two days, Anne Keothavong’s team, comprising Konta, Boulter, Watson, Dart and Swan, just need to defeat Hungary to reach the final against Serbia or Croatia and have a chance of a World Group II play-off in April. With the anticipation and local support growing, it promises to be an exciting contest.
