BORAS, SWEDEN: Sofia Arvidsson reflects on her 64 16 63 win over Great Britain's Laura Robson which promoted Sweden to World Group II for 2013.

"It was a tough but fun match to play" says the 28-year old, after an exciting battle that saw her opponent save eight match points before eventually falling.

"This is the best feeling, winning was amazing."

Swedish captain Maria Strandlund-Tomsvik looks ahead to 2013 and to a team that she says definitely belongs in the World Group.

"I know the margins are really tough but both Sofia and Johanna will have improved their rankings and I think we're going to have an even stronger No. 3 and 4, so I'm very optimistic about the future."

And finally, Judy Murray says her Brits will not be beaten down after losing their first ever World Group II play-off tie.

"Having seen the buzz that it's created, we will go back and do the same job again" she says, on rejoining Europe/Africa Group I.

"We have an exciting future ahead of us with Laura and Heather and alot to be proud of this weekend."
