Bolton to host Davis Cup next year

Tennis Bolton Arena will be the venue for Great Britain’s 2011


Cup opener against Tunisia, the Lawn

Tennis Association have announced.

Britain 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.
