"I knew that all the pressure was on them because on paper she’s meant to beat me easily" - Dart on underdog mentality after Great Britain reach semi-finals at Billie Jean King Cup Finals

Great Britain advanced to the Billie Jean King Cup semi-finals for the first time in 40 years after beating Spain no native spoil.

Great Britain is enjoying playing at home as Dart was able to secure the British team's victory over Spain in the Billie Jean King Cup Finals. Despite being the underdogs, they were to secure the knockout stage for the first time in forty years. Dart said:

“I’m just so proud to represent my country, to be able to also perform on home soil in front of a home crowd. Doesn’t get more special than that. My goal was to make it as tough as possible out there for her, and I felt like I executed my game plan really well. I knew that all the pressure was on them because on paper she’s meant to beat me easily.”

Doubles players Olivia Nichols added:

“The sky’s the limit after what we have shown so far. We were definitely underdogs in this group. No doubt about it. Both the singles girls, Harriet and Heather, getting unbelievable wins. We have shown what we can do on the doubles court at well. I don’t see there are any players or teams here that we shouldn’t walk onto court thinking we can’t beat. We will just keep going.”
