JUDY PROUD AS PUNCH AT GB FED FEAT; TENNIS.
The captain's girls followed up wins over Portugal, Holland and Israel in the pool stages to climb into the second tier of world team tennis.
Anne Keothavong and Scot Elena Baltacha were the heroes in yesterday's Euro/ Africa Zone Group I decider in Eilat, Israel.
And an April play-off against the likes of the US or Belarus may now await the Brits.
Murray - who was skippering the side for the first time - said: "Right now I'm over the moon that we've managed to win all of our matches to top our group and then get ourselves a promotion play-off.
"It is everything I hoped for and I'm just so proud of the team after what they've achieved."
Keothavong beat Patricia Mayr-Achleitner 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 in yesterday's opening match before world No. 57 Baltacha produced an inspired display to crush 48th-ranked Tamira Paszek 6-1 6-4. The team also included young doubles pairing Heather Watson and Laura Robson.
Murray said: "Anne worked very hard. She was a total professional and really came through for us. And you'd be hard pushed to find a better No.1 than Bally. She's just such an incredible competitor. She leaves everything on the court so it's exciting times ahead for us.
"And it's exciting times for the future because Anne and Bally are playing the best tennis of their lives.
"Heather and Laura are exciting prospects and hopefully this will inspire them to help us develop a team that can really do some damage in the Fed Cup."
The Americans are playing Belarus in one of four World Group II first-round matches this weekend.
The winners go through to a play-off for promotion into the World Group while the losers join Britain in a battle for a place in World Group II.
