Great Britain have been handed a tricky Billie Jean King Cup qualifying tie against the Czech Republic next April.

Anne Keothavong's side could not face a tougher task with the current Czech team, led by French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova, currently ranked fourth in the Billie Jean King Cup standings.

They won the event six times between 2011 and 2018, and will be at home with a decision on both the venue and date to be announced in the coming weeks.

Earlier this year the team of Heather Watson, Katie Boulter, Harriet Dart, Katie Swan and Jodie Burrage defeated Mexico in their Play-Off tie at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton.

But they must now overcome the Czechs in order to make the 2022 Finals.

Keothavong said: "The team are really looking forward to taking on Czech Republic in our 2022 qualifier and hopefully continuing our momentum in the Billie Jean King Cup next year."
