British Fed Cup captain Judy Murray tells The Birmingham Mail that more is expected of young players Laura Robson, Heather Watson and Johanna Konta this season.

“Laura and Heather made significant jumps last year from around 120 up into the top 40, both of them. Those are significant jumps,” Murray said. “This year poses slightly different issues for them in so far as this time last year they wouldn’t be seeded in these events, this year they are. And there is an expectation of them. Coaches and players on the tour know more about them so they are not as new as they once were.

“It’s about learning to live at that level; it’s one thing getting to a certain ranking but it’s learning to live there as well. All of them, Jo, Laura and Heather are all still young, I think they are all on a good track. At the end of the day you will get to where you are destined to get to by how much you want it and how much you are prepared to dedicate and sacrifice towards getting to the very top.”
