Great Britain defeated Portugal 3-0 in the first tie of their Fed Cup campaign in Estonia.

Heather Watson and Jo Konta both won in Tallin, and a doubles win took them to a 3-0 win.

Watson defeated Francisca Jorge 6-4 6-1.

Konta enjoyed a straights set victory of her own, defeating Maria Joao Koehler 6-1 6-0.

In the doubles, Koehler and Jorge teamed up against Anna Smith and Katie Boulter, with the Britons winning 6-0 6-2.

The next match for Britain is Estonia on Friday, and they would go on to play the winner of Group C in a play off should they finish top of their group.

If they won that tie then they would then take part in the World Group II play-offs, to be held in April.
