Britain will face Poland in the BNP Paribas World Team Cup men’s semi-finals after both nations finished top of their respective pools in Sardinia in Italy.
The British team faced a head-to-head clash with Austria to decide the winners of Pool B after they had each prevailed in their opening two matches at the Alghero Tennis Club.
An impressive performance from Alfie Hewett put Britain in control of the tie.
He won 6-1, 6-1 in the opening singles rubber against Martin Legner.
Victory and a semi-final spot were secured by Gordon Reid.
The Rio 2016 gold medallist clinched a 6-3, 6-0 win over Nico Langmann.
Legner and Langmann sought to end the round robin phase on a high but the Austrians were beaten 6-1, 4-6, 10-6 by Reid and Dermot Bailey in the doubles.
Having completed the pool stage without losing a set, Britain will head into the semi-finals in a confident mood as they seek to reclaim the title they last won in 2015.
