    Join me again tomorrow from 16:30 GMT as Britain take on Serbia in the play-off. The winner of that tie will progress to April's World Group II play-offs, where they will get the chance of promotion to the second tier of women's team tennis.

    See you then!

    If you missed any of Katie Boulter's victory earlier (unlucky, it was amazing!) then you can read all about it when Tom Garry's full report is up and running on the website.

    It's also worth re-living that intense Konta match!

    Johanna Konta

    Konta professionally plays down any suggestion that her finishing after 23:00 GMT will be an advantage for the Serbians tomorrow.

    Nevertheless, recovery will be key now for the British number one.

  4. Post update

    More from Anne Keothavong speaking to BT Sport: "The support has been incredible. There is so much interest in women's tennis. You can see the enthusiasm and passion from the fans.

    "If they can watch more high-class tennis like this then just think of all the kids we can inspire.

    "The goal is to be in the top group. The players come back and put themselves on the line and that is a credit to them."

  5. 'Experience is so valuable'

    Great Britain captain Anne Keothavong speaking to BT Sport: "Experience is so valuable. Bondar played the match of her life. We didn't expect that. She rose to the challenge and played much better than her ranking suggests.

    "I am so proud of her and Katie too. They have left everything out on the court. That's all I can ask for. Fortunately, the win went our way.

    "Konta was fine after the second set she just likes to get changed and take on lots of fluids. It gave her a chance to re-group.

    On who would have played the doubles match: "What was I thinking? It was, yeah! I have 15 minutes after the game to decide and in all honesty, it would have depended on how the players were physically.

    "But we have capable players and we have options so it depends on the player's physical state.

    "We will come back tomorrow - it is another day. Recovery is going to be key. We will have to touch base with the players in the morning and make a decision then."

  6. 'She played amazing tennis'

    Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 7-6 (7-4) Bondar

    British number one Johanna Konta to BT Sport: "The reason why I was on the ropes was because of the way she was playing. She played amazing tennis.

    "I am very fortunate to have come through that. If anything I think it was my experience which got me through which she will get in time.

    "That was just another incredible match after Katie's. She had a big battle too. I am speechless a little bit. I am still trying to come down from it.

    "She [Bondar] served absolutely incredible the whole match! The important thing is to remember to breathe and know that I still have a dog at home that loves me regardless. I have a boyfriend too but definitely the dog, that's for sure!

    "She was playing well so I had to remember that and to not judge myself too harshly and try to break her rhythm as much as possible.

    "I am just happy I followed on from Katie as she is doing incredibly well. It is another opportunity we have given ourselves and we will go into tomorrow and put it all out there like we have done so far."

    The crowd rightly give Anna Bondar a long round of applause. That was some performance by the world number 224.

  8. Post update

    A note about Anna Bondar. She was absolutely sensational. She has never even played a main tour qualifier and has just taken the former world number four all the way to the wire.

    She's being consoled by her teammates at the moment but once the dust has settled, I'm sure she'll be very proud of her performance this evening.

  9. Post update

    Great Britain remain unbeaten in the Fed Cup, top the group and will play Serbia in tomorrow's play-off!

    Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 7-6 (7-4) Bondar

    YES!!!!

    An immense rally breaks out but Konta comes out on top when Bondar's forehand falls short.

    Konta wins in three sets!

  11. Two match points

    Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 6-6 (6-4) Bondar*

    Bondar's forehand hits the net! Is this it??

  12. Tie-break

    Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 6-6 (5-4) Bondar*

    Bondar gets another return in. She's back level with a mini-break. Konta keeps her cool though to flash another big serve and remain in front.

    You can feel the nerves in this room. The tension is extraordinary.

    What is going through the minds of Harriet Dart and Katie Swan?

  14. Tie-break

    *Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 6-6 (4-3) Bondar

    An ace from Bondar. Her 14th of the rubber. Ridiculous.

  15. Konta moves ahead - tie-break

    Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 6-6 (4-2) Bondar*

    Konta's return flashes back and Bondar nets. The Brit has got her nose in front! Come on!!!

  16. Tie-break

    Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 6-6 (3-2) Bondar*

    Konta dishes up a big serve and Bondar overcooks the next return. Still on serve.

  17. Tie-break

    *Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 6-6 (1-2) Bondar

    Bondar's forehand falls short. Konta brings it back level!

    The Brit can only slump the next return into the net though.

  18. Tie-break

    Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 6-6 (0-1) Bondar*

    Bondar pounces on to a short ball and sends it into the corner. Mini-break up already.

  19. Post update

    ANOTHER TIE-BREAK!!!!

  20. Bondar holds

    Konta 6-2 6-7 (1-7) 6-6 Bondar

    Konta is pushed behind the baseline as Bondar moves up to 30-15 when a return falls into the net.

    A flashing forehand is just way too good from Bondar and she's up to 40-15. An ace wraps it up.

    Wow. Stunning. She's 21.
