There’s lots of Fed Cup action this week including Great Britain playing on home soil, plus three ATP 250s.
I’m going to start with the Fed Cup. Not only do we have Great Britain taking part in the Europe/Africa Zone Group I in Bath from Wednesday, but there is also televised coverage of the World Group quarter finals at the weekend.
Firstly to Bath, where the British team of Johanna Konta, Katie Boulter, Heather Watson, Harriet Dart and Katie Swan will be looking to make their way through to April’s play offs once again.
Coverage of Great Britain’s group matches and the group winners’ match will be on BT Sport, also in 4K UHD.
