Spain face Canada in Davis Cup
The five-time winners, who will take on the Czech Republic in this year’s final from November 16-18, defeated Canada in the only previous meeting between the two nations back in 1991.
Spain are the top seeds for the competition, but team captain Alex Corretja believes his players will need to be on their mettle against a Canada team which is set to include World No. 15 and rising star of the ATP Tour Milos Raonic.
“Canada was one of the strongest opponents we could have drawn, not only for the quality of the team led by Milos Raonic but also for the fact that we are the away team and only a week after the Australian Open,” Corretja told the Spanish Tennis Federation’s website.
“That means another long journey and all the effects of the change in time zone.
“It will be a tough tie but the important thing right now is to focus on the final we have to play in two months against Czech Republic.” Credit: cnn.com
