Canada falls 3-1 to Croatia in the first round of Davis Cup

Canada had to have a perfect day on Sunday in Osijek if they were going to beat Croatia and advance to the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas quarter-finals, but Borna Coric sealed the tie for the home country thanks to a 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 win over Denis Shapovalov in the fourth match.

Shapovalov sees his three match win streak in Davis Cup ended by the no. 47 ranked Croat. Coric, who opened the tie with victory over Vasek Pospisil, was the star of the weekend for Croatia. He played a virtually flawless match from start to finish, committing very few unforced errors and earning one break of serve in each set.

Frank Dancevic named captain of the Canadian Davis Cup team

Tennis Canada announced on Thursday that Frank Dancevic has been named captain of the Canadian Davis Cup team, replacing Martin Laurendeau who has stepped down in order to dedicate his time to coaching Denis Shapovalov.

Dancevic made his Davis Cup debut as a player in 2002. Since then, he has posted a record of 18 wins and 22 loses in 26 appearances with the team. A native of Niagara Falls, Ontario and current resident of La Prairie, Quebec, Dancevic played one of the best matches of his career in the 2013 World Group first round, defeating Spain’s Marcel Granollers, then ranked world No. 34, by a score of 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. It was that year that Canada reached the semifinals, the best result in the nation’s Davis Cup history.

Captain Lleyton Hewitt called upon Jordan Thompson to take on Steve Darcis in the live fifth rubber. The Davis Cup veteran was too strong for the Sydneysider defeating the 22-year-old 6-4 7-5 6-2 to take the win and the tie.
