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.
