The nominations have been announced for the Europe/Africa Zone Group III event which takes place in Tallinn, Estonia beginning on 5 February 2014.

Former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki headlines the list of nominations and will be aiming to help Denmark achieve promotion having fallen to the lowest rung of the competition in recent years.

Hosts Estonia have welcomed back their top two players, Kaia Kanepi and Anett Kontaveit, after the pair were absent during their relegation from Zone Group II last year.

Kanepi has featured in 30 previous ties for her nation but this will be her first appearance since a defeat at the hands of Spain in the World Group II quarterfinals in 2011.

Two nations are making a return to the competition having not competed in recent years. Botswana have not played since 2006 while Iceland are back for the first time since 2009 having won only once in their 38 ties.

The draw for the event will take place on Monday 13 January at the ITF offices in London.
