Davis Cup boost for Britain

Britain were knocked out of this year's competition by the USA

Great Britain have been seeded for the 2000 Davis Cup, giving their hopes of winning the tournament a major boost.

Britain are one of eight seeds in the 16-team World Group, meaning they will avoid the other seven strongest teams in Thursday's draw for the first round.

The other seeds are Australia, the United States, France, Spain, Russia, Slovak Republic and Germany.

British Davis Cup captain David Lloyd was furious his team were not seeded earlier this year when they were drawn against and ultimately beaten by the United States in the first round.
