    And it has ended with the result which - unless you're from Kazakhstan - I'm sure you all wanted.

  2. What next for Team GB?

    Great Britain 3-1 Kazakhstan

    So what happens now for Team GB? Well, they are promoted to World Group II whatever.

    However, there is chat a revamped Fed Cup - featuring 12 teams - could be up and running as soon as April next year.

    And if that does happen then the win against Kazakhstan almost certainly guarantee Britain's involvement in this new format.

    Win, win.

    BBC tennis correspondent at Copper Box Arena

    Finally, finally, finally, GB are into the elite World Group II.

    Next year it won't be that rather soul-destroying format that has dogged GB for a quarter of a century.

    We can't pretend they are world beaters but there is promise there.

    Great Britain 3-1 Kazakhstan

    So, after five disappointments in the past eight years, Britain finally get through a World Group II play-off.

    The relief is palpable inside the Copper Box. The players, along with captain Anne Keothavong, link hands and race to the crowd, raising them in a German football-style celebration.

    Ole! Ole! Ole!

  7. 'Heroic effort'

    Great Britain 3-1 Kazakhstan

    Great Britian captain Anne Keothavong: "Amazing. Just a heroic effort from the players this week, some fantastic tennis.

    "Everyone here has been part of our journey and this has been an unforgettable weekend.

    "Jo's effort. coming back from behind, to Katie today. I think they have inspired a lot of people."

  8. 'I was trying to make everyone proud'

    Great Britain 3-1 Kazakhstan

    Katie Boulter's grin has probably never been wider. Three missed match points yesterday, the third taken today.

    Nerves. Of. Steel.

    "I was trying to get one win for the team, Johanna did a great job, I was just trying to make them proud today," Boulter tells BT Sport.

    "I showed yesterday how much it meant, I was so close but today I bounced back and got the win.

    "We go again!!"

    Katie Boulter roars, the Copper Box erupts!

    Hugs and kisses all round as Great Britain celebrate with a circle dance.

  11. Game, set and match Boulter!

    Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 6-1 Diyas

    SHE'S DONE IT!!!!

    Katie Boulter hammers down an ace and GB are into the Fed Cup World Group II!!

  12. Third match point for Boulter

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 5-1 Diyas

    Diyas goes long. Another match point for Britain...

    Gulp.

  13. Boulter misses second match point

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 5-1 Diyas

    First serve out wide...

    Second serve.. hammered back by Diyas.

    Deuce. Tense.

  14. Second match point for Boulter

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 5-1 Diyas

    Diyas goes long... back to deuce.

    And a trademark Boulter shot - forehand winner down the line - means she has a second match point...

  15. Post update

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 5-1 Diyas

    And then Boulter hits the net! Oh no. Break back point, thoughts of yesterday come flooding back...

  16. Boulter misses match point

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 5-1 Diyas

    Cheers as the Brits thinks Boulter has landed an ace... she hasn't. Then Diyas lands a super cross-court winner.

    Back to deuce...

  17. Match point Boulter

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 5-1 Diyas

    Boulter wants to get this one done and dusted. She goes after a second serve and produces a double fault... 15-30. But she's back on terms quickly and then has a match point when Diyas whips a forehand long...

  18. Boulter breaks

    *Boulter 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 5-1 Diyas

    Boulter moves 15-0 ahead with a cute drop-shot then - with the help of Hawkeye - goes 30-0 in front. Diyas is rocking, Boulter is rolling.

    The Copper Box decibel-meter almost goes off the scale, three break points to Boulter.

    Diyas skews a return wide! Britain one game away from the World Group II for the first time in 26 years!
