Winning start for Great Britain

Great Britain started their Fed Cup Group One campaign with a resounding 3-0 win over Bosnia in Eilat, Israel.

Anne Keothavong defeated Dea Herdzelas 6-4 6-2 in the first rubber before British number one Heather Watson claimed a 6-3 6-4 victory over Anita Husaric to set up a 2-0 lead.

Laura Robson and Johanna Konta then finished things off with a comprehensive 6-0 6-0 whitewash of duo Jelena Simic and Jasmina Kajtazovic as Britain completed a perfect start.

The Pool B games had been delayed after heavy rain on Wednesday, which meant Great Britain could only begin their tournament on Thursday.

However, it did not disrupt their preparations as they started off in the best possible style ahead of Friday's scheduled meeting with Portugal.
