Great Britain made a superb start to their Fed Cup challenge with a comprehensive win over Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Judy Murray's team are in Pool B of the Europe/Africa Group 1 and came into their clash with Bosnia-Herzegovina as heavy favourites.

They lived up to their billing in some style, with Anne Keothavong and Heather Watson romping to victory in their singles games and Johanna Konta and Laura Robson wrapping up the 3-0 win in the doubles.

Keothavong kicked things off against Dea Herdzelas and powered to a 6-4 6-2 win. Keothavong was dominant in all departments, breaking on four occasions and winning a healthy 63% of points on her own serve.

Watson was just as impressive in her 6-3 6-4 win over Anita Husaric and the point was sealed when Konta and Robson combined to crush Jelena Simic and Jasmina Kajtazovic 6-0 6-0 in the doubles.

Hungary would appear to be GB's chief rival for top spot as they swept aside Portugal 3-0 - with Greta Arn and Timea Babos winning their singles matches.
