    If you missed it earlier, Heather Watson gave Great Britain hope with her 6-0 7-5 win over Rebecca Sramkova earlier today, before Harriet Dart's defeat to Anna Schmiedlova.

    Slovakia qualify for April's 12-nation Fed Cup Finals in Budapest and will be joined by Russia, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and Belgium, who have all wrapped up their ties.

    The Netherlands and Belarus are going to a deciding doubles rubber, while the USA are 2-0 up against Latvia, who they face again later tonight.

  3. Post update

    Great Britain will now have a play-off in April to try and reach this stage again.

    Harriet Dart gave it everything on her singles debut this weekend but it wasn't to be. She's shedding a few tears on the bench alongside captain Anne Keothavong.

  4. Game, set and match

    Dart goes for the backhand winner but it's long. That's it, all over. Schmiedlova wins the match and that means Slovakia win the tie 3-1.

    It's a huge surprise whenever Harriet misses the backhand up the line. But it's a costly miss.

    *Schmiedlova 7-5 5-3 Dart

    Dart reaches the backhand... but Schmiedlova coolly puts away the volley. 30-30. The Brit sees the line and goes for it but it's long! Noooo, costly miss.

    Harriet seems a bit more on her shots at the moment - she still has belief.

    Wow! Dart comes up with a superb backhand winner. She fist pumps and roars. 15-30.

  14. Post update

    *Schmiedlova 7-5 5-3 Dart

    Very nice from Schmiedlova, who moves Dart around the court on the back foot and closes in on the net to put away a drop shot.

    Dart responds with a huge cross-court backhand. 15-15.

  15. Post update

    *Schmiedlova 7-5 5-3 Dart

    Schmiedlova is ice cool.

  18. Post update

    *Schmiedlova 7-5 4-2 Dart

    Serious frustrations for Dart now as she hits her head with the racquet several times. Another three break points go begging.
