Fed Cup captain Judy Murray has picked 16-year-old Swan, who is ranked 520 in the world

Teenager Katie Swan has been selected as one of Great Britain’s singles representatives for this week’s Fed Cup tie in Israel.

Australian Open semi-finalist Johanna Konta pulled out of the team earlier this week because of illness.

Captain Judy Murray’s team face Georgia and South Africa from Thursday in their bid to win promotion from Euro/Africa Zone Group 1.

Swann, 16, was a beaten finalist in the 2015 Australian Open junior final.

British number two Heather Watson will also play in the singles, while Jocelyn Rae and Anna Smith compete in the doubles.
