Britain face Budapest qualifiers
Judy Murray will take Great Britain to Budapest in February to begin their latest attempt to climb the Fed Cup ladder.
A team of Heather Watson, Laura Robson, Anne Keothavong and Johanna Konta successfully negotiated the Europe/Africa Group I stage this year, beating Portugal, Hungary, Bosnia/Herzegovina and Bulgaria.
But then, with the unwell Watson replaced by Elena Baltacha, Britain lost a World Group II play-off 3-1 to Argentina in April.
The loss in Buenos Aires left Britain back where they began at the start of the year, still looking to clamber out of the Europe/Africa zone and into the second tier of the elite level.
The International Tennis Federation confirmed on Thursday the Europe/Africa Group I matches will be played in the Hungarian capital in the week commencing February 3, 2014.
Should the team captained by Murray - mother of Wimbledon champion Andy Murray - come through the Budapest stage, they would face another World Group II play-off on April 19-20.
Countries including Belgium, Croatia, Holland and Belarus - for whom world number two Victoria Azarenka has not played in the last two years - will be attempting to block Britain's path.
Murray revealed a sweet tooth in her initial reaction to confirmation of the event's location, writing on Twitter: "Googling 'patisseries Budapest' as we tweet."
