TALLINN, Estonia - Johanna Konta fought back from set a down to seal Great Britain's place in the Fed Cup promotion play-off on Saturday.

The World No.10 and Heather Watson helped the British team beat Portugal 3-0 on Wednesday and Latvia by the same score on Thursday before facing Turkey in the final Pool C match today.

Watson, the World No.72, comfortably overcame Ipek Soylu 6-0 6-1 in the opener but says the match was deceptively hard.

"The score was 6-0 6-1, but it felt a lot closer than that in the games and she's a good player but today I just felt that I was pretty flawless," she explained after the match.

Konta was made to work harder for her success. After taking a 5-3 lead in the first set against Cagla Buyukakcay, Konta lost four straight games to hand the World No.86 the opening set.

But the 25-year-old raised her game after that setback to close out a 5-7 6-4 6-3 win and victory in the tie ahead of the final doubles match.

"I'm just really happy to come through that," she said. "It wasn't easy and she definitely played herself into the match and to give us the opportunity to go into the play-off tomorrow, I'm very happy for us and the team."

Britain will face Croatia for the prize of a World Group II play-off in April.
