GB TO HOST TUNISIA IN BOLTON

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
4-6 tie.

”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
provide the ideal stage for the match against Tunisia.”

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

Victory over their African opponents would see them face
Luxembourg or Ireland in the second round.
