Bolton Arena will be the venue for Great Britain’s 2011 Davis Cup opener against Tunisia, the Lawn
Tennis Association announced today.
Team GB will be fancied to claim a straightforward victory at
home in the Europe/Africa Group II meeting regardless of whether
world number four Andy Murray makes himself available for the March
”It’s a great choice of venue for us,” said Great Britain
captain Leon Smith.
”We’ve always had fantastic support in the north-west, and
Bolton Arena will no doubt generate a passionate atmosphere, and

Great Britain will need to secure three wins next year to secure
promotion back to Europe/Africa Group I.
