Britain end Fed Cup on high

Great Britain ended their Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone campaign with a comfortable 2-0 relegation play-off victory over Austria in Budapest on Sunday.

Victories for Tara Moore and Heather Watson helped Judy Murray's team to success in the ninth-place play-off.

Moore, competing in her first singles rubber in the competition, overcame Tamira Paszek 6-2 6-4.

And then Watson made light work of world No 38 Yvonne Meusburger 6-4 6-2 to claim her fourth singles win of the weekend.

The dead doubles rubber was not played.

Their hopes of promotion ended in the group stage when they were beaten by Romania and hosts Hungary.

"It was great to finish on a winning note after a challenging week. Tara came out really strong in her match, she was a real firecracker and Heather was amazing today," Murray told the official LTA website.

"I'm very proud of the whole team. The only shame is that we won't be playing Fed Cup again for another year, but we are looking forward to 2015."
