BORAS, SWEDEN: It was Sweden who rose to the occasion on the opening day taking the first two rubbers in straight sets to give the hosts a convincing 2-0 lead in Boras. Despite this comfortable scoreline Swedish captain Maria Strandlund-Tomsvis is well aware of the threat the Brits still pose and knows there is still a lot of tennis to be played before the Scandinavian nation can be assured of its place back in World Group II.
British captain Judy Murray ponders her selection choices for Sunday and reflects on a disappointing first day for the visitors. Despite similar rankings between the players for each match neither British player was able to impose themselves on their opponents game.
Johanna Larsson and Sofia Arvidsson discuss their matches and how the slow court impacted on their games.
