 When a team has a squad of 4 can the captain play as a 5th? It could be that Yaroslava is Kazakhstan's second best doubles player!

Yes, the team captain can play as the 5th player, provided they have been nominated as a playing captain.
Shvedove last played singles and doubles at the US Open in 2021, and doesn't have a ranking at all now, although her CH in 2016 was WR3 in doubles.

Yeah, BBC covering GB ties, rest of Centre Court is on BT Sport. Not sure about Court 1 - probably their official site.

Katie playing well but oh dear that was a terrible error on a forehand short ball to get a double break and serve for the set. Chance gone. 

*4-3

Poots is her usual cheery self. But must hold this game now, potential momentum shift that one.

Katie and Yulia have played twice before; in the Fed Cup playoffs in 2019 when Yulia won a third set tie break and in Portoroz in 2021 when Yulia won 3 & 1.

Ace brings up set point but it's wasted with a very shaky double. Gets a second with a good follow-up to a nice serve, and Poots goes wide.

6-4 0-0*

A bit nervy from Katie, could have made it easier and 4DF's didn't help.

Poots cranking it up a gear.
