ITF Press Release, April 14, 2024

Germany, Great Britain, Poland, Slovakia, Romania and USA booked their places at the 2024 Billie Jean King Cup by Gainbridge Finals after sealing victories in this weekend’s Qualifiers, which concluded on Saturday.

They will join 2023 world champions Canada, 2023 runners-up Italy, host nation Spain and wildcard Czechia in Seville in November, as well as earlier Qualifiers winners Australia and Japan.

Emma Raducanu‘s second win of the weekend – 4-6 6-1 7-6(1) over Diane Parry – clinched an impressive 3-1 triumph for Great Britain over France in Le Portel, after Katie Boulter had beaten Clara Burel in straight sets to put the visitors 2-1 up.

“It’s going to take a lot of work to try and wipe this smile off my face,” said British captain Anne Keothavong. “What a day, the atmosphere was just rocking, Katie (Boulter) and Emma (Raducanu) came to play and put in some fantastic performances against tough opposition. I’m just so chuffed for the team. We came here and we knew it was going to be difficult. But we came, we performed, and we’re all leaving with a big smile.”

Ana Bogdan and Jaqueline Cristian sealed Romania’s path to Seville with a decisive doubles victory in Fernandina Beach, capping a remarkable comeback from 2-0 down to win 3-2 against Ukraine. Romania will compete in the Finals for the first time.

Poland, Slovakia and USA cruised to 4-0 triumphs over Switzerland, Slovenia and Belgium respectively, and Germany defied a sell-out home crowd in Sao Paulo to beat Brazil 3-1.

Austria, Argentina, Colombia, China, P.R., Denmark, Korea Rep., Netherlands and Serbia all progressed from the regional Group I events to November’s Play-offs, where they will compete for a place in the 2025 Qualifiers alongside the losing nations from this week’s Qualifiers.

Croatia and Lithuania achieved promotion from Europe/Africa Group II to Europe/Africa Group I. The remaining regional group events at Group II-level and below will be played later in the season.
