Ayumi Morita clinched victory for Japan with a 7-5, 6-2 triumph over Belgium’s Tamaryn Hendler in the opening reverse singles match of their Fed Cup World Group playoff on Sunday.

Morita’s win at Ariake Colosseum gave the host nation an unassailable 3-0 lead and assured a return to the eight-nation World Group in 2013. Japan last played in the World Group in 2007.
