The Bahamas will be back in action Thursday against Jamaica in the 2018 Davis Cup Zone III Group B qualifiers in Costa Rica.

Team Bahamas picked up two wins over the first two days of competition against Honduras and Antigua and Barbuda, had a bye yesterday, and will be back to close out group play today.

Team Bahamas is the only team to boast a perfect record after two matchups, although Jamaica also has an unblemished record following a solitary match against Bermuda.

On day one, the Bahamas topped Honduras 2-1 behind wins from Baker Newman and Philip Wilbert Major in the singles rubbers.

And against Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas scored a 3-0 win. Just like opening day, Wilbert-Major and Newman chalked up wins in their singles rubbers, while Major and Marvin Rolle sealed doubles wins over Carlton Bedminster and Kevin Gardner.

Teams have to finish in the top two of their pools to have any chance of advancing to Group II. The winner of Pool A, which is made up by Paraguay, Costa Rica, Cuba and Panama, will play the runner-up in Pool B, with the winner of Pool B going against the runner-up in Pool A. The final two teams will be promoted to Group II.
