    We're finishing up here now but that doubles match will be taking place and you can read up on it in our match report which will be updated later on the website.

    Tune in again tomorrow from 16:30 GMT as we'll be bringing live text commentary on the decisive rubbers.

    If Britain win tomorrow's tie with Hungary, they will top Group A and qualify for Saturday's play-off to see who can reach the World Group II play-offs.

  2. 'An opportunity to showcase tennis'

    Former British Fed Cup captain Judy Murray speaking to BT Sport: "I brought Katie [Swan] into the squad in 2016 to sort of blood her in and she did amazing.

    "So it didn't surprise me at all how well Katie did when she came in to play the doubles yesterday.

    "To come here and have a home tie is just the most incredible thing. It's a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase tennis - and women's tennis in particular.

    "This is quite a brutal format. Four players might seem like a lot but it's not really. You have to manage the team."

  3. Post update

    Poor Maria Sakkari has to go and get ready for the doubles match! She will partner up with Despina Papamichail to take on Britain's Harriet Dart and Katie Swan.

  4. 'I had to dig deep and make it a battle'

    Konta 4-6 6-2 6-3 Sakkari

    Johanna Konta speaking to BT Sport's Clare Balding, is asked how tough she thought that match was: "I don't think you have to ask! (She laughs for quite a while!) It was a great match and consistently on her behalf.

    "I had to work very hard to bring my level up because she raised her level and was playing far better than me. I had to really dig deep and make it a battle.

    "I'm just so happy I was able to use your support once again. It's hard to explain what it feels like to be in front of all your support.

    "It's quite special. I don't think I will experience anything like it again in my life."

    She waves to Mum and Dad. "I gave them a big sweaty hug afterwards so they're probably drenched in my sweat but that's okay! I am really happy they were able to be here. I'm sorry about their nerves. I hope they still have finger nails.

    "No tennis player can hope for a better environment to play in."
