Great Britain will find out their opponents for their first Davis Cup World Group match since 2008 at the draw in London on Wednesday.

Britain returned to the elite group following their 4-1 win over Croatia and will play next in February.

The Czech Republic and Serbia, who meet in the final in November, are seeded first and second, and either could be opponents for unseeded Britain.

The 2014 draw takes place on Wednesday 18 September at 11:00 BST.

The rest of the seedings follow the latest ITF Davis Cup Nations Ranking as of 16 September, where Britain are currently 18th.

Spain, who won the tournament in 2008, 2009 and 2011 are seeded third, with Argentina fourth.


France, the 2001 winners, are fifth, the United States sixth, Canada seventh and Kazakhstan eighth.

The seeded nations will be drawn against the remaining World Group nations: Australia, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Netherlands and Switzerland.

The last time Britain played at this level they were beaten 4-1 by Argentina, in Buenos Aires, in February 2008.
