"The board have unanimously decided to name Sergi Bruguera and Anabel Medina as captains for the Spanish Davis and Fed Cup teams," the RTET said in a statement.

Both replace Conchita Martinez who was dismissed from her role in charge of both teams last month.

Bruguera's first tie will see Spain host 2015 winners Great Britain between 2-4 February.

Medina has the task of leading a Spanish Fed Cup team, containing Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza, back to World Group I away to Italy on February 10 and 11 next year.
