From LTA site:
EGON Team GB recorded another 3-0 win in their 2009 Fed Cup campaign and are currently top of their group in Tallinn, Estonia.
AEGON Team GB Captain Nigel Sears looked on with pride as Elena Baltacha defeated Michelle Gerards, Anne Keothavong beat Arantxa Rus and Keothavong and Sarah Borwell were victorious against Nicole Thyssen and Pauline Wong, all without dropping a set.
With Baltacha up first against Gerards, a player ranked 277 in the world, it was Baltacha who was broken first in the third game but, the British player hit back immediately and raced through the rest of the first set 6-2.
The second set saw five successive breaks of serve but it was Baltacha who got the decisive break to take the set and match 6-2 6-4.
Full of confidence from yesterday’s victory, Anne Keothavong was next up against the talented young left hander Arantxa Rus. Keothavong broke in the fifth game and went on to take the first set 6-4.
Both players traded breaks early in the second set and with Keothavong striking the ball well from the back of the court and moving Rus around with ease, the British No.1 broke again in the ninth game and maintained her composure to serve out the match 6-4.
Keothavong took to the court for the doubles rubber, teaming up with Sarah Borwell and the combination of powerful serving and deft volleying was too much for their opponents Nicole Thyssen and Pauline Wong. The British girls won 6-4 6-0.
Speaking after the match, Nigel Sears was again delighted with his team’s performance: “It was really important to back up yesterday’s win over Hungary with another good result today and I’m pleased with another emphatic victory.
“It’s a good feeling to be leading the group after two days but we know we still have work to do if we are going to top the group and gain a place in the semi-finals. The team is in great shape and we are looking forward to tomorrow’s match against Luxembourg.”
AEGON Team GB will take on Luxembourg at 10.00am local time (8am GMT).
