Great Britain's Fed Cup team face a long trip to Argentina in April after reaching the World Group II play-offs for the second year in succession. If they win in Argentina they will reach a level they haven't been to since 1993.

Victory over Bulgaria in Israel last Sunday sent Judy Murray's team through from the Euro/Africa Group and gave them a big chance to move into the world's top 16 in 2014.

Britain are currently ranked one place above Argentina at 16 in the Fed Cup rankings. They have won both previous meetings, the last of which took place in West Germany in 1980. While Britain have Heather Watson and Laura Robson in the world's top 50, Argentina's leading player is Paula Ormaechea at 195.
