“I’m delighted that all of our strongest ranked players have made themselves available for the Billie Jean King Cup tie versus Sweden next month” said Keothavong. 

“We are very excited to have yet another opportunity to play in front of a home crowd, especially at the Copper Box Arena where the fans were so instrumental in helping get us over the line when we last played there a few years ago.

“Finally, being able to captain this team is always a huge privilege and to bring live tennis back to where I grew up, means a great deal to me on a personal level.”

Having lost out in their qualifying tie against France back in April, Great Britain will now take on Sweden in the Play-Off tie, with the two-nations competing for a place in the 2024 Billie Jean King Cup Qualifiers.

The Play-Off tie will be hosted at London’s Copper Box Arena in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. 

Tickets start from as little as £5 for children and £10 for adults.
