Zimbabwe has bounced back to the Davis Cup World Group II next year after beating Senegal 2-1 to top Group B at the Africa Group III championships in Pretoria, South Africa on Friday.
Zimbabwe, led by Benjamin Lock, had the worst possible start to the competition losing 2-1 to Namibia on the first day of the competition before making a comeback with wins over Benin and Senegal.
Other players in the team include rising star Takura Mhwandagara, Liberty Nzula and Benedict Badza -who was the number two player.
The country was relegated to the less fashionable Africa Group III after losing 3-2 to Uruguay in a rain-interrupted World Group II Playoff tie at Harare Sports Club back in February.
Meanwhile, the team will face off against South Africa on Saturday for the African championship title with play -to be screened live on SABC- scheduled to start at 10am.
