Great Britain's Fed Cup captain Anne Keothavong has named the squad to represent Great Britain in the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group II Play-Off against Kazakhstan.

Johanna Konta, Katie Boulter, Heather Watson, Harriet Dart and Katie Swan will return to action two months on from their epic triumph in Bath, which saw them win all ten of their rubbers played as part of the Europe/Africa Group I competition. 

The tie will take place from 20-21 April at the Copper Box Arena at Queen Elizabeth Park and victory on home soil would mean Great Britain would return to the World Group for the first time since 1993. 

Keothavong said: “I’m delighted to name our strongest possible team to represent Great Britain at Copper Box Arena in ten days’ time against Kazakhstan. It promises to be a memorable occasion as we aim to reach the World Group level for the first time since 1993, staged against the iconic backdrop of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London, a place that has special significance for me. 

"There is little to separate the two teams in terms of rankings, but I’m confident the home fans will give all our players an inspirational lift just like we had in Bath earlier in February.  It’s also very important to our team to open up our sport to new fans and increase awareness of tennis at different times of the year.”
