Yes hard to see why Anne went with Katie with her having so many niggles

Because the other option was Heather losing in under an hour? Heather didn't play Shrewsbury due to a niggle I think, and Harriet also apparently picked up an injury in practice. It's been a long year, but still...

Katie trying desperately to cling on here but rather postponing the inevitable.

1-4*

I'd say that it's because on her day Katie can steo up to just about the best quality we have available here..

So for me a not unreasonable judgement call which it seems isn't ultimately oming off. But as underdogs fair enough to just go for it.

Oh man at 30-30 Katie sets up a routine smash and absolutely fluffs it. Darn it.

Katie started really well but once Poots settled down and particularly got an eye in on the returns it started to run away a little quickly. As soon as her level went up Katie couldn't live with it and hers started falling away. Katie did looked tired by the end, she did a lot of running, but there is a big ranking gap and it did look justified.

In short, the better player won, but Katie as always showed flashes of sensational tennis. A pretty enjoyable match I thought. She's certainly playing well enough to beat whoever the Spanish put out at #2 in my view. I can't imagine NPD will love these courts.

GB lose 4-6 6-3 6-2

Let's see how Harriet can do against Rybakina.

No the other option would be to bring Jodie onto the team if Katie and Heather are both carrying injuries.

 Could have possibly had Jodie in the squad rather than Heather or as well as, and not selected both of Lissey and Olivia. ( given the injury concerns ). But I'd still condider Katie B the best option and it was probably gping better than it would have ever been likely to with Heather or Jodie.

And to fair to Katie she is almost going beyond reasonable call to dury given her history with injury at the Fed Cup.

 Oh I thought Jodie should have replaced Emma, but given that choice wasn't made the only options were Heather or Katie, in which case Katie was comfortably the better choice.

Are there any obvious advantages of finishing 2nd in the group rather than 3rd?

 Just BJK Cup ranking points. Everyone 3-12th goes into the playoffs next year I believe, unless they have to rejig if Belarus and Russia are accepted back in to play next year (which seems unlikely).
